Evaluation of results of laboratory scale model studies and theoretical analyses for prediction of characteristics of flow in fluid mechanics design; theory of dynamic similarity; equations are derived for determination of laws of homologous operation of turbomachines; reformulation of laws of dynamic similarity required by vector nature of fluid flow variables; discrepancies in geometrically distorted models and possible model adjustments for compensation.
