Solutions for axially symmetric flow through an impeller with and without inducer vanes were obtained by relaxation methods using an analysis developed herein. The fluid was considered inviscid and incompressible. The impeller selected was of arbitrary design except that the impeller blades were assumed to have zero thickness and to consist of radial elements.
