Beta Lines

Smooth T produces turbine maps with the same number of points on each speed line. A net of equally spaced auxiliary coordinates called beta lines is used in the map smoothing process. The beta lines can be used in performance computer programs to locate the operating point in the map.

In Smooth T the beta lines are composed of parabolas. The beta line grid can be defined either graphically or by the input of the parabola coefficients.
