Abstract:

This report, in two volumes, describes a computer program that has been developed for the design of axial compressors. The principal purpose of the program is to enable a single computer program to determine the geometry of the compressor blading, details of the flow within the compressor, and the design point performance of the machine. Some optional calculation routines will also enable effects of mixing of the flow to be investigated. The program consists fundamentally of three sections two alternative means of determining blade geometry, and an aerodynamic computation for the flow through the compressor.
