Abstract : The analysis procedure of an existing computer program was extended to include rotor blade sweep, to model the flow more accurately at the rotor exit, and to provide more detail to the loss model. This report describes the modeling changes and presents all analysis equations and procedures. Program input and output are described and are illustrated by an example problem. Results obtained from this program and from a previous program are compared with experimental data. (Author)
