Presented in this memorandum are the theoretical modifications to the radial equilibrium equation and the computerized adaptations required to approximate the effects of skewed blading in the current working version of the streamline curvature method computer program (SCM-IV). The procedure is illustrated by the analysis of a pumpjet that is fitted with a skewed rotor. The results of this analysis which utilizes the data generated by PRESKEW show an improved agreement with experimental data relative to SCM-IV calculations prior to the skew modification.
