This paper presents the second part of an investigation into the influences of the aerodynamics of compressor blade rows on measurements made using steady state pneumatic pressure probes. In part one, the in rig calibrations of the probes in the low and high speed compressors showed that the wind tunnel derived calibration in yaw could be reproduced with good accuracy in the compressor, despite the flow in the compressor being unsteady, and in the case of the high speed compressor, of a different Reynolds number. In this part, CFD simulations of the flow about a probe, both within a low speed compressor and a steady, uniform flowfield are presented. The influence of the pressure gradient existing within the stators in which the probe is positioned was found to be small, as was the effects of unsteady flow. The major contribution to measurement errors appears to lie within the probe blockage effect.
