In the thermodynamic design of turbines and compressors it is essential firstly to decide on the basic features of the machine. In turbines, for example, one must determine whether high specific mechanical energy output is the aim or whether one may sacrifice some of this high specific output for an increase in gross stage efficiency. It is then necessary to decide on such factors as blade speeds, stream velocities and degree of reaction or compression.
