The effects of varying radius along a streamsurface are included in a two dimensional blade-to-blade potential flow analysis of turbomachinery rotors and stators in order to model better three dimensional effects. On a cylindrical streamsurface, flows in rotors can be treated as steady flows in the rotating frame; the rotation can be ignored. On a streamsurface with varying radius, however, the flow, even in the rotating frame, is not potential. Thus the physical flow is related to a non-physical, potential flow for calculation purposes. Computed results for compressor stators and rotors show that the potential solution agrees well with an Euler solution, that effects of radius variation are very important for both stators and rotors, and that effects of radius contouring and of rotation can also be important.
