Relative velocity and streamline distributions on the plane of x = 0.16 m in the suction chamber are shown in Figure 11.
The pressure applied increases in the radial distribution, the lowest value being in the suction chamber (inlet chamber), and the highest in the discharge chamber (outlet chamber) [5].
At this moment, the pressure inside the suction chamber is high, so the pressure difference across the vane pushes the vane (and the piston) to move in the direction of reducing the volume of the discharge chamber.
The angle is measured across the suction chamber. Thus, at small crankshaft angles, which will be considered the beginning of the crankshaft revolution, the volume of the suction chamber is small.
