Abstract
The blade-element performance of a small transonic compressor rotor operating at high subsonic speeds is reported. Measurements were made downstream using a small calibrated pneumatic probe, with simultaneous measurements of total pressure, velocity, turning angle, pitch angle, and temperature. In addition, a program is presented to calculate blade-element performance based on empirical data contained in NASA SP-36.
