Description: A program was conducted in an altitude facility at the NACA Lewis laboratory to investigate the effects of rapid inlet pressure oscillations on the operation of a current turbo jet engine. These pressure oscillations were approximately sinusoidal in form and were generated to cover a frequency range of 2 to 75 cycles per second and an amplitude range of 10 to 70 percent of the free-stream total pressure. As the oscillation progressed through the compressor, the amplitude was attenuated considerably and a relatively large phase shift (lag) occurred. Engine stall limits obtained during pressure oscillations differed from quasi-steady-state stall limits as defined by over-all compressor pressure ratio.
