    <...>, an element of endwall...,<...>

    Hi,

    I want to know "an element of endwall boundary layer flows [44]" relates to "horseshoe vortices" or not in the following sentences? If it is not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer. Is the following sentence clear?

    Fig. 13 highlights the main secondary flow structures in Wells turbines such as the tip leakage vortex and horseshoe vortices, an element of endwall boundary layer flows [44], near the hub.


    Explanation: Horse-shoe vortices are an element of an element of endwall boundary layer flows not tip leakage vortex not tip leakage vortex.

    Please note that it is just one sentence that is under discussion. (Not "sentences".)

    Your first sentence should read:

    I want to know if "an element of endwall boundary layer flows" [44] relates to "horseshoe vortices" or not in the following sentence.

    That sentence is not in the form of a question, so it doesn't get a question mark.

    I think in your explanation a couple of phrases are repeated. Perhaps:

    Horseshoe vortices are an element of endwall boundary layer flows, not tip leakage vortex.

    I think I know the answer to your question, but first I want to know what you think.
