Abstract:

Research related to understanding and modeling aerodynamic loss production in axial-flow compressors was accomplished. Some progress in clarification of loss prediction was attained. Suggestions for incorporating wake interaction effects in axial-flow compressor design calculations are offered. Some of the inherent complications associated with supersonic blade testing are noted. Further study of specific details of loss generation is proposed. Keywords Axial-flow turbomachinery Turbomachine flow measurement Computational fluid mechanics.
