I'm looking at ways to calculate the axial thrust of a turbomachine. The ways that i've found in books aren't the best documented.

I know I can't use Bernouli's law since the impeller will chop up the stream lines.

Can I construct a control volume with $N$ flows in and $M$ flows out and determine the static pressure inside said control volume?

If so, could this be used to determine the pressure distribution in the impeller and casing of a turbomachine by chopping the turbomachine up into a number of control volumes?
