Abstract:

A computer program is presented to determine the three-dimensional flow conditions in an axial flow compressor stage. Entropy and energy gradients are taken into account as well as the radial shift and the curvatures of the axisymmetric stream surfaces. The program can be used at elevated Mach numbers since shock losses and compressibility effects are included. It represents an extension of work done for a research program to investigate the tip clearance effects in a three-stage compressor.
