Experimental investigation of a conservatively designed turbine at four rotor-blade solidities

Description: Report presenting a program to determine limiting values of the aerodynamic parameters used in turbine design, which includes a study of several turbine designs suitable for application in current aircraft power plants. In this first report, the performance of a single-stage turbine of conservative design was studied for the purpose of establishing a basis for the comparison of turbine performance of less conservative designs.

Investigation of distribution of losses in a conservatively designed turbine

Description: "A primary objective of turbine research is to obtain information that will aid in the design of gas turbines for any given application with minimum losses. As part of a program to obtain such information, flow surveys downstream of both the stator and the rotor of an experimental turbine were made in order to obtain detailed information about the flow conditions and the losses within the machine. The single-stage, low-radius-ratio turbine studied is relatively conservative in design, having low rotor-inlet relative Mach number, low turning angle, and high reaction at the rotor-root section" (p. 1).
