Abstract : This report describes work carried out at the Gas Turbine Laboratory at MIT during the period 10/20/92 - 10/31/95, as part of a multi-investigator effort on unsteady and three-dimensional flow phenomena in turbomachines. Within the overall project, three separate tasks are specified. These are, in brief: 1. Characterization of Fully Scaled, Unsteady Film Cooled Turbine Blade Heat Transfer and Aerodynamics; 2. Flow Control in Compression Systems by Viscous Flow Removal; and 3. Unsteady Phenomena in Turbomachinery Endwall Flows.
