This lesson covers the intricate aspects of turbine aerodynamics, focusing on the three-dimensional aspects of flow through axial flow turbines. It delves into the similarities and differences between axial flow turbines and axial flow compressors. The lesson also explains the concept of three-dimensional flow and how it impacts the performance of turbines. It further discusses the theories developed to factor in the three-dimensionality of the flow. The lesson also touches upon the modern designs and analysis that have shown that some flows do acquire a certain amount of three-dimensionality. For instance, the lesson explains how the radial component of the flow becomes an important issue in three-dimensional flow. The lesson concludes by discussing the different design laws used in modern axial flow turbines.
