The influence of Coriolis forces and streamwise curvature on boundary layers has been introduced into an integral method by adding a correction term to the dissipation factor. This correction term is related to Coriolis forces and streamline curvature in terms of a parameter 13 which was determined using existing experimental data. Theoretical calculations using this value of show good agreement with experimental results for a wide range of curvature and rotation numbers representing realistic conditions for turbomachinery applications.
