This report presents a method for meridional through-flow calculations in turbomachines which is available to the quasi-three-dimensional design problem. An equilibrium equation along an arbitrary quasi-orthogonal is formulated by exactly averaging the equations of continuity, momentum and energy in the circumferential direction. In the present method the assumption of S2-surface is unnecessary, and the effect of blade force due to the pressure difference across a blade and the effect of non-axisymmetricity due to finiteness of the number of blades can be rigorously taken into account.
