The equations of motion, in three dimensions, for solid particles moving in a compressible gas flow in a rotating cascade are solved for the case of the particles moving through a compressor guide vane followed by a compressor stage. The solution considers the particle impact and rebound with both the blade walls and the compressor casing. The three dimensional absolute paths of the particles, their trajectories relative to the compressor rotor, their velocity histories, and the combined particle velocity diagrams in the compressor cascades are given. The effects of flow parameters on the dynamic behavior of the solid particles throughout the compressor one and one-half stage are investigated.
