In this paper the author presents a three-dimensional flow study for mixed (axial and radial) flow rotors. In order to make the analysis manageable the actual stream surfaces are assumed to coincide with surfaces of revolution. The intersections of the blade surfaces with these surfaces of revolution are mapped onto planes normal to the axis of the rotor. The investigation of the flow in the “picture” planes is based on available two-dimensional cascade theories. Position and shape of the surfaces depend upon the equilibrium of the flow in the direction perpendicular to the surfaces of revolution. The flow in each individual surface of revolution is found by remapping from the planes. Improved position and shape of the surfaces of revolution can be derived from the equilibrium condition. This procedure must be iterated until two consecutive iterations lead to the same result.
