An investigation was conducted on an engine propulsion simulator S N 00102 to determine sea-level-static component performance and to determine the compressor performance and stability characteristics with uniform and distorted inlet pressure profiles at Reynolds number indices of 0.39 and 0.78. Steady-state component performance data are presented and are compared with predicted data. The effect of Reynolds number indices and the effect of circumferential inlet distortion of the compressor performance are shown.
