    than

    Is the use of "than" in the following sentence correct grammatically and conceptually? If it is not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer.

    The pressure drop coefficient is decreased at ϕ≥0.15 for the VTB than the CTB
    .

    VTB=variable thickness blade
    CTB=constant thickness blade

    ϕ=flow coefficient

    I think you mean compared or as opposed to, not than.

    The pressure drop coefficient in the VTB is lower than that in the CTB at ϕ≥0.15.

    Is it OK?
