Investigation of a high-performance axial-flow compressor transonic inlet rotor designed for 37.5 pounds per second per square foot of frontal area 1: aerodynamic design and overall performance

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the design and tests of a transonic inlet rotor with emphasis placed on increasing the design specific weight flow while maintaining reasonably high pressure ratio and efficiency. Information regarding peak efficiency and how to best achieve it through design is provided.

Low-speed cascade tests of two 45 degree swept compressor blades with constant spanwise loading

Description: Report discussing an investigation of two 45 degree swept blades in low-speed cascade tunnels at a range of angles of attack and various combinations of inlet-air angle and solidity. The isolated wing method used to design the blade predicted the twist distribution and camber shape necessary to obtain an almost uniform spanwise loading.

A technique applicable to the aerodynamic design of inducer-type multistage axial-flow compressors

Description: Report presenting a method for presenting the preliminary design calculation of high-pressure ratio, multistage, axial-flow compressors using the solid-body inducer-type design. Calculations are presented for various inlet hub-tip ratios, weight flows, and average pressure ratios per stage.
