How to calculate Kaplan Tubine blades profile?

By Artur Suglob on 26 Mar 20:52 2 answers 745 views 1 comment

I understand how to make the blade with loft function with some known profiles. But I have problems with the profile. I have no commercial program at hand to make a blade. Can anyone please advise me how to calculate profile geometry?I've tried to look in books,but found only partial calculations (for main blade profile dimensions).I think it should be about 3-4 sections to loft..Or may be there is any freeware software for kaplan blades calculation?

    well come on...that simple! all you go to is calculate the geometry using the formula A^2+B^2=C^2
