Abstract : An evaluation of the rotor outflow matching to a downstream stator was conducted for a transonic compressor stage. The study compared experimental data and throughflow computations of the blading flow field to examine the flow angles and velocity distribution of the isolated rotor and the stage. An assessment of the data allowed the degree of interaction and matching of the blade rows to be determined. It was found that the rotor flow was only slightly modified by the presence of the stator and that rotor flow was only slightly modified by the presence of the stator and that the rotor flow dominated the overall stage performance. Keywords: Turbomachinery flow fields.
