A brief outline is given of the method of characteristics for the analysis of one-dimensional nonsteady flow. Two typical types of experiments are discussed which indicate the degree of accuracy possible if this method is applied to machinery like the Comprex supercharger. As an example, a typical analysis is presented for one particular engine-performance point. It is possible to duplicate engine test results with acceptable accuracy.
