The stalled flow performance of a single stage transonic compressor is examined, using data from the MIT Gas Turbine Laboratory's Blowdown Compressor Facility. Measurements of the blowdown corrected weightflow are included, as well as stage exit static to inlet total pressure rise, and rotating stall cell measurements. A comparison of the flow blockage, as represented by stall cell circumferential extent, with the blowdown corrected weightflow is made. The 100% design speed stalled flow performance characteristic is presented. Radial traverse.data is also presented including flow angles, static and total pressures, and Mach number components.
