A theoretical method was developed for predicting the pressure distribution over a blade in cascade for a compressible flow with solid particles. Experimental results were obtained from a cascade wind tunnel equipped with a solid particle injection system. Good agreement was noted between the theoretical and experimental pressure distribution. The change in pressure due to the particles gives reduction in the force on the blades. The presence of solid particles in air-breathing engine gas flow changes the turbine performance. The overall turbine efficiency decreases as a result of the introduction of solid particles. The performance experiment was performed on a two-stage velocity-compounded turbine.
