The three-dimensional flow through a cascade of twisted flat-plate blades is calculated using a computer program based on a finite-difference approximation to the method of characteristics. The relative flow is supersonic but the axial flow is subsonic. For two-dimensional flow under similar conditions, the inlet flow field is one of “unique-incidence,” the effect discussed by Starken (5) and others. The main purpose of the present work is to extend the understanding of this effect to three-dimensional flow. Important differences between the two and three-dimensional flow fields are explained in terms of the interaction between neighboring sections of the flow.
