The paper outlines a quasi-three-dimensional approach based on the solution of the entire inviscid momentum and energy equations in the meridional and blade-to-blade plane to calculate the blade loading in a radial flow turbomachine. The method is outlined in detail so as to enable the reader to adapt it for use on his computer. The flow in the compressor is considered to be nonhomentropic with variations of thermodynamic properties at the inlet. A comparison of various inlet distributions is shown and this illustrates the usefulness of this method. Calculation of the velocity on the trailing and driving faces of the blades is obtained. Pressure and temperature distribution throughout the flow passage considering an actual process is also outlined.
