Calculations for Poncelet (undershot) waterwheels

  1. Feb 16, 2015 #1
    Could anyone provide me with, or point me in the direction of, any calculations for the design of Poncelet water wheels? Number of blades and blade shape/curvature in particular. I've had a trawl through the internet and looked through some papers but can't find much understandable information.
