 October 26, 1999, 12:18 Strouhal Frequency #1 J. McCarthur Guest   Posts: n/a Guys, Does anybody know how to calculate the Strouhal Frequency for a highly turned (about 90 degrees) turbine blade? I know how to do that for cylinder, for thin airfoil, but not for such a high turning turbine blade. thanks. J.M.

The analysis also involve calculations using other numbers such as Euler Number, Reynold's Number and some other parameters. But for turbine blade, I heard of a number called Dean Number can be used for calculations. Results are obtained at Dean Number from 50 to 1100 which include laminar channel flow, laminar flow with Dean vortex pairs, flow with secondary instabilities, channel flow with local regions of augmented turbulence, and turbulent channel flows.

For a turbine blade, this Strouhal number depends mainly on the Reynoldsnumber and the Mach number. I'm not aware of any simple equation, but I vaguely remember that for many subsonic flow regimes and Reynoldsnumbers above 1000 , the Strouhal number is between 0.2 and 0.3, if the trailing edge thickness is used as the lenghth dimension.
