Effect of heat-capacity lag on a variety of turbine-nozzle flow processes

Robert B. Spooner
Oct 1950

As a necessary consideration in the application of the variable heat capacity of gases in the analysis of turbine-engine processes, the effect of heat-capacity lag in the adiabatic expansion of a gas (nitrogen plus water vapor) through a turbine nozzle was computed using a one-dimensional analysis of a representative flow process.
