The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has measured the unsteady flow field of a high speed Contra-Rotating Turbo Fan (CRTF). In order to perform the measurement, hot-wire probes were placed upstream of the first rotor, between both rotors and downstream of the second rotor. With the DLR hot-wire measuring technique, unsteady flow structures (e.g. the wake of each individual rotor blade) were measured and analyzed in detail. The averaged mean vectors as well as the fluctuation components of the velocity were determined. The calculated local turbulence distribution of the flow downstream of the rotating blades shows an increase of the turbulence intensity of 3% in the wake. With the phase-locked averaging and the spectral analysis an upstream effect of the rotor 2 was verified.
