Abstract:

This report describes a computer program that is designed for the analysis of single-stage axial compressor data. The axisymmetric flow of a thermally perfect compressible fluid is assumed, and the streamline curvature method of solution is employed. Details of the blade geometry may be computed or input, and a detailed account of the flow through the blading may be obtained. The analysis is limited to a single-stage compressor, but inlet guide vanes may be included. Variable geometry is permitted in both the inlet guide vanes and the stator vanes. An option in the analysis is to match computed and experimental static pressures at any radius by varying annulus blockage or relative flow deviation angles. Author
