A Machine for Testing Steam-Turbine Nozzles by the Reaction Method

G. B. Warren, J. H. Keenan


This paper explains in detail the apparatus used in reaction-nozzle tests, the important difficulties encountered, the means of eliminating them, and the methods of obtaining and developing test data. It discusses the underlying principles and the type of results they would indicate, and shows by sample test curves the close agreement between the expected and the actual data.
