A method is presented whereby complete potential flow solutions for any cascade geometry may be obtained with comparatively great rapidity on desk calculators. This solution is carried out for the case of symmetrically cambered airfoils such as the 65-series compressor and circular are airfoils and the results presented in a compact graphical form completely account for the potential flow effects of camber, profile, thickness, stagger, solidity, and angle of attack. Real fluid effects will be assessed and correlated in Part II using the present results as a supporting theory.
