 July 8, 2008, 03:15 Re: what is isentropic mach number? #4 Vinayender Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I guess if we take relative P0_freestream then what we get is relative ISentropic Mach no silmilarly if we take absulote P0_freestream then what we get is absolute Isentropic Mach no. Again I guess in turbomachinary people always want relative isentropic mach no so better use relative P0_Freestream. Any how, thanks a lot Jonas for your definition of Isentropic Mach no for which i was searching for. Also thanks Peck for asking that question. Thanks, Vinayender.

It should be Inlet for both Compressor and Turbine (and your inlet can be at bottom or at top in meridonal view depending wether it is a compressor or turbine respectively). Thanks, Vinayender.

Thanks.
