Turbulent interactions in multistage compressors

At present, there is no numerical model that provides equally acceptable predictions of local flow and integral operating behaviour for compressor cascades and multi-stage axial compressors. However, individual model combinations lead to a sufficiently accurate prediction of flow fields. Furthermore, a so far not understood excessive turbulence production in compressor cascades is observed. It is hypothesized that even small deviations of the inlet boundary conditions in connection with adverse pressure gradients and work input into the flow cause large deviations downstream. This influence is fueled by prediction errors of the turbulence and transition model and multi-stage effects. This hypothesis will be investigated to allow an improvement of the numerical flow prediction of multistage compressors.  For this purpose, scale-resolving simulations are used, which provide an insight into flows that cannot be achieved experimentally.
