This report documents the design of a set of vane rows that were used to simulate the stator-exit conditions of a moderately loaded fan stage. These vanes were intended to be used in detailed characterization of the intra-blade flow field existing between the wake generator and the rotor in the Stage Matching Investigation Fan Configuration test article. This is in support of the Blade Row Interaction Task under the Innovative Aero Approaches to High Stage Loading RZT High Impact Technologies HIT in-house research program.
