Mandelbrot, Benoit B. (1949) Some potential problems arising in the theory of axial turbomachines. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-11122003-085608
Some potential problems raised by the trailing-vortex theory of axial turbomachines are solved in the cases of cylindrical semi-infinite and infinite helicoidal vortices and of trailing vortices in a cone. The analysis is carried out for the cylindrical doubly infinite case and the dynamical problems are set up.
The results are in a form where further applications to the physical problems may be undertaken and actual computations worked out.
It is hoped that this work will be completed in the future.
