Procedures for designing the hub-shroud contour and the blade shape of mixed-flow and centrifugal impellers are presented and evaluated in terms of experimental results obtained for impellers designed by these methods. The experimental results in general indicate that these design procedures are reliable. Additional experimental results with varying boundary-layer allowance and some vaned diffuser test results are presented.
