    grammatical and conceptual

    Hi,

    I am writing Introduction of a paper. Now, Is the following sentence correct grammatically and conceptually. If it is not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer.


    "As mentioned above, analysis of the airflow through the Wells turbine have been carried out over the years by means of experimental, numerical methods to improve the its performance. To this purpose, such design methodologies employ the first law of thermodynamics for this analysis, But process irreversibilities are not represented in the analysis"

    Would it be better if the bold sentence is written like this :

    the air-flow through the Wells turbine was investigated using a numerical, experimental, and numerical methods to improve its performance.

    Thanks for your help.

    Best.

    I am not a teacher.

    I think the original sentence in bold is better, but there are a couple of errors in it.

    It is either, 'analysishas been carried out' or 'analyseshave been carried out'. You should also remove 'the' before 'its' at the end of the sentence.

    Re: grammatical and conceptual

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct grammatically and conceptually?

    Is "under 2D steady flow condition" in a proper position following sentences?

    Sentence:

    In a recent study, entropy generation due to viscous dissipation around different airfoils is analysed by shehata et al , under 2D steady flow condition.

    .................................................. .........................

    2D= two dimensional

    Thanks.

    Best,

    Ali

    Please start a new thread for this unrelated question. A good title would be A great capacity.

    EDIT: I see you have already asked the same question here.

    Ask us again if you don't get a satisfactory reply from WR forums.
