High-speed cascade tests of a blade section designed for typical hub conditions of high-flow transonic rotors
Description: Report discussing high-speed cascade tests made of a blade section designed for conditions typical of the hub section of high-flow transonic rotors. The intent of the testing is to provide information on the effects of local surface Mach numbers on blade performance. The test results, effect of more forward location on peak surface velocities, effect of increase in pressure-rise coefficient, effect of Mach number and pressure rise on turning angle, and a comparison of variation in momentum-loss coefficient with surface pressure-rise coefficient are provided.
