Abstract:

In order to determine further the feasibility of using a supersonic compressor as a source of high stagnation temperature air for hypersonic wind tunnel testing, a detailed aerodynamic study was made of a four-stage counter-rotating supersonic compressor. The performance of the compressor was calculated assuming that the relative Mach number entering and leaving the rotor was the same and, therefore, the flow was only turned in the rotor. Author
