A procedure is described which develops the non-dimensional design of a radial inflow turbine rotor. The design is developed, for any specified non-dimensional power ratio, with the objective of minimising the inlet and discharge Mach numbers so that the passage losses are minimised. Initially state of the art efficiencies are assumed but are later modified through the specification of empirical losses. The resultant non-dimensional design can be transformed to absolute dimensions through the specification of the inlet stagnation conditions and the mass flow rate of the working fluid.
