Investigation of a 10-stage subsonic axial-flow research compressor I : aerodynamic design

Irving A. Johnsen
Apr 1952

A 10-stage axial-flow compressor was designed for use as a research unit in which the problems associated with the compounding of high performance stages could be studied. The design was based on a symmetrical velocity diagram with constant total enthalpy at all radii.
