Abstract:

A code for computing the aerodynamic design of a multistage axial-flow compressor and, if desired, the associated blading geometry input for internal flow analysis codes is presented. The aerodynamic solution gives velocity diagrams on selected streamlines of revolution at the blade row edges. Blading is defined from stacked blade elements associated with the selected streamlines. The blade element inlet and outlet angles are established through empirical incidence and deviation angle adjustments to the relative flow angles of the velocity diagrams. The blade element centerline is composed of two segments tangentially joined at a transition point. The local blade angle variation of each segment can be specified with a fourth-degree polynomial function of path distance. Blade element thickness also can be specified with fourth-degree polynomial functions of path distance from the maximum thickness point.
