Description: The Rateau supercharger investigated had, under normal operating conditions, an adiabatic efficiency of 52 percent, the CINA constant-pressure altitude being 6,240 m and the corresponding CINA compression ratio being 2.22. In order to understand the flow conditions in the supercharger, the air velocities at various points, the theoretical delivery heads and a few characteristics were calculated.
