    confined area-since

    Hi,

    I am writing a paper, so I am grateful from you that guide me.

    Are the following sentence correct grammatically. If these are not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer.

    1. Because of obtaining a high accurate prediction of the turbine performance, the researchers considered tip clearance region, since tip leakage flow is one of the most important secondary flows in turbo machinery.

    2. According to Fig. 5, from hub toward tip, the confined area of Cp plot and hence lift force acting on the blade increase, especially in the leading edge portion.

    For second sentence, you can to see fig.5:





    Thanks,

    Best,

    Ali

    Re: confined area-since

    "1. Because of obtaining a high accurate prediction of the turbine performance, the researchers considered tip clearance region, since tip leakage flow is one of the most important secondary flows in turbo machinery."

    I think you should say "In order to obtain a highly accurate prediction of the turbine performance, we considered the tip clearance region, since tip leakage flow is one of the most important secondary flows in gas turbines.

    "2. According to Fig. 5, from hub toward tip, the confined area of Cp plot and hence lift force acting on the blade increase, especially in the leading edge portion."

    As shown in Fig. 5, the coefficient of pressure, and hence the lift force acting on the blade, increases as we move from the hub to the tip, especially in the leading edge portion.

    You are going to need a lot of help, Ali. Your English seems to be very far from equal to this task.

    Re: confined area-since

    Hi,

    Thanks,

    It should be use simple present(For non-human) and simple past tense(In the third person-for human), passive tense(for human and non-human) , third person tense(In the third person-for human and non-human) in the papers.

    sentences of "we move from the hub to the tip" is not correct. But sentences of "the researchers considered tip clearance region" is correct because It is used from third person tense(for human). What can be replaced for "we move from the hub to the tip"?

    Thanks,

    Best,

    Ali

    "But the sentence 'the researchers considered tip clearance region' is correct ..."

    Wrong. While it may be approximately grammatically correct, it is quite unnatural. No respectable academic journal is ever going to accept it. "We ..." is the only acceptable academic usage.

    Re: confined area-since

    sentences of "we move from the hub to the tip" is not correct.

    Thank you for correcting me. At this point I will declare you unteachable, and stop replying. Duh.
