dc.description.abstractA single-stage transonic research compressor and test rig are to be used to obtain data on the effect of inlet flow distortion on compressor (and therefore engine) stall. Auxiliary injection was examined as a technique for generating distortion in inlet stagnation pressure, or temperature, or to simulate the more complex effects of engine steam ingestion from a catapult launch. Engineering analyses were developed and programmed in EES to relate inlet conditions to the compressor characteristics, for both pressure and temperature distortion. An injection duct area of 8% was selected to limit the required heater power. A CFD analysis was carried out to predict the compressor inlet flow field and hence position the injection duct exit. It was found that a broad range of distortion parameters could be generated by simply ducting (and heating) atmospheric air (or steam) through an auxiliary inlet throttle valve.en_US
