Two kinds of Steam Turbine. Most models will be "impulse" turbines due to the difficulties of producing the complex curves for a reaction turbine. Most commercial turbines are reaction. With an impulse turbine, steam velocity is everything, but there are tradeoffs. Steam is heated & can expand. In that case, providing more volume just before injection to the rotor blades converts as much heat as possible to velocity. So, a diverging nozzle (such as the "trumpet" nozzle) works better.
