This is the second part of a study of the “third” two-dimensional problem of three-dimensional blade systems of hydraulic machines. Part I described the formulation of the problem and the proposed method of solution to determine the velocity field on surfaces orthogonal to mean axisymmetric stream surfaces. Part II presents the numerical method of solving the integral equations; a few numerical examples for actual impellers/runners are also given. The results are presented in a series of figures and tables showing the distribution of the velocity component c2 along the blade profile on the surface q1 = const. The purpose of these numerical examples is to demonstrate the method and to help create a general understanding and awareness of the flow conditions existing in the runner passage.
