A cascade design-method is presented which complements the meridional through-flow design procedure of turbomachines. Starting from an axisymmetric flow field and the streamline geometry in the meridional plane this simple method produces a solution for the quasi three-dimensional flow field and the blade-element geometry on corresponding stream surfaces. In addition, it provides intra-blade data on loss and turning required for a consistent design and a convenient means of optimizing blade loading. The purpose of this paper is to describe the theoretical basis of the method and to illustrate its application in the design of transonic compressors.
