- A 22.9-centimeter diameter axial flow rotor with a 0.8 hub-tip radius ratio, a design flow coefficient of 0.466, and a blade tip design diffusion factor of 0.55 was tested in cold water under both cavitating and noncavitating conditions. Radial surveys of the flow conditions at the rotor inlet and outlet were made. At design flow, the rotor produced an overall headrise coefficient of 0.360 with an overall efficiency of 95.0 percent. The efficiency remained greater than 88 percent over the entire flow coefficient range which varied from 0.350 to 0.615.
