    The average velocity field at the pump-turbine interface in a scaled version of a truck torque converter was studied. Seven different turbine-to-pump rotational-speed ratios were examined, ranging from near stall (0.065) to overspeed (1.050) so as to determine the effect of the speed ratio on...
