Flow passage design and analysis procedures employing a TAYLOR series expansion across the flow field were first suggested as far back as 1908. With very few exceptions the early work addressed only the problem of symmetrical convergent-divergent passages. A generalization and an extension of the approach permits it to be used for the design of arbitrary cascade passages in subsonic, supersonic, or mixed-flow regimes. The method will give fast, realistic solutions in situations where shock-free flow is meaningful, and where the cascade gap-chord ratio is not excessive. It assumes inviscid, irrotational flow and employs a fourth-order TAYLOR series expansion across the cascade passage. Numerous examples are given, with comparisons with experimental data and other analytic solutions.
