Theoretical investigation of velocity diagrams of a single-stage turbine for a turbojet engine at maximum thrust per square foot turbine frontal area

Leo Cohen
Jun 1952

An exploratory velocity-diagram analysis was made in order to establish the aerodynamic requirements of a single-stage, axial-flow turbine which satisfies the conditions of maximum thrust per square foot of turbine frontal area in a turbojet engine. The investigation was made for a range of turbine mean blade speeds and inlet temperatures, fixed flight conditions, and a constant centrifugal stress at the root of the rotor blading.
