Abstract : The aerodynamic and mechanical design features of an advanced F100 compressor are described. The design objectives were to increase the efficiency and stability, along with simplifying the mechanical configuration in order to reduce the number of parts. Test results from a compressor rig and core engine are shown. Comparisons of the performance to the current F100 compressor are made. Results of testing with inlet pressure distortion are shown. Configuration features to improve reliability, durability, maintainability, and producibility are described.
