Some effects of solidity on turning through constant-thickness circular-arc guide vanes in axial annular flow

Mankuta, Harry., Guentert, Donald C.

An investigation was conducted on sheet-metal, circular arc compressor inlet guide vanes in an annular cascade with untapered walls to determine the effect of solidity on turning through a blade row. Guide vanes of 30 degrees and 40 degrees camber were investigated over a range of solidity from 0.5 to 4.0.
