Prior to the detailed design of components, turbomachinery engineers must guide a mean-line or throughflow design towards an optimum configuration. This process requires a combination of informed judgement and low-order correlations for the principle sources of loss. With these requirements in mind, this paper examines the impact of key design parameters on endwall loss in turbines, a problem which remains poorly understood.

The analysis focuses on parametric computational studies of linear cascades, which represent a simplified model of real-engine flow. The designs are nominally representative of the Low Pressure Turbine blades of an aero engine. The paper examines the variations across the design space in a quantitative manner, examining the impact of flow angles, blade thickness and suction surface aerodynamics.
