Abstract : Pressure distributions on seven quasi-elliptical profiles were calculated with Sells' method, using different mesh sizes and smoothing parameters. The results are compared with Boerstoel's results obtained with Nieuwland's method for design flow conditions. Some results for off-design conditions are included. The report also gives some indication of the proper use of the Sells' method. Only plots of the pressure distributions are included in the report. (Author)
