Increased flow and pressure rise at constant speed have been achieved for a centrifugal impeller by application of the jet-flap and of mechanical tip flaps to backward-curved airfoil blades. Flow increments up to 16 percent and pressure increments up to 36 percent have been obtained with a control efficiency of 85 percent. Peak total-to-total efficiencies of the basic impeller have been found to be over 88 percent. An experimental correlation has been found for radial jet-flap cascades between lift increment and jet thrust, cascade solidity, jet angle, and effective blade aspect ratio.
