Abstract:

This report describes work carried out at the Gas Turbine Laboratory at M.I.T. as part of our multi-investigator effort on basic unsteady flow phenomena. Within the overall project, four separate tasks are specified. These are, in brief I. Unsteady Flow in Compressors II. Computational Techniques for Unsteady Flows III. Unsteady Phenomena, Inlet Distortion, and Flow Instabilities in Multistage Compressors IV. Unsteady Vortical Wakes Behind Blade Rows - Prediction of Relationships with Blade Properties. Computational fluid mechanics Unsteady flows in turbomachines Vortex wakes Compressor stability Transonic compressors.
