Abstract

The goals in performance that are presently put forward for advanced turbomachines can only be achieved by a careful consideration of the three-dimensional (3D) geometric effects and secondary flows. The two-dimensional (2D) cascade concept for blade design is nowadays useful only as a first guess of the optimum geometry.
