Generalized loss correlations for full and partial admission turbines have been derived and critically compared with recently published data. Effects included are Reynolds number, blade angles, blade height, blade number, blade trailing edge thickness, tip clearance, and reaction. These generalized loss relationships are for use in optimization of turbines over a wide range of possible operating conditions.
