Abstract : A study was conducted to determine the potential requirements for inlet total-pressure distortion in the Wright Laboratory Compressor Research Facility (CRF). The study included types and levels of distortion of interest, generation methods, instrumentation, and test techniques. Cost comparisons of various options were generated. Based on this study, it was determined that time-variant distortion testing is beyond the scope of die CRF mission and that screens should continue to be used to generate steady-state distortion.
