This two-part paper presents detailed experimental investigations of unsteady aerodynamic blade row interactions in the four-stage Low-Speed Research Compressor of Dresden. In part I of the paper the unsteady profile pressure distributions for the nominal setup of the compressor are discussed. Furthermore the effect of blade row clocking on the unsteady profile pressures is investigated. Part II deals with the unsteady aerodynamic blade forces, which are determined from the measured profile pressure distributions. A method to calculate the aerodynamic blade forces on the basis of the experimental data is presented. The resulting aerodynamic blade forces are discussed for the rotor and stator blade rows of the first stage and the third stage of the compressor. Different operating points between design point and stability limit of the compressor were chosen to investigate the influence of loading on the aerodynamic force excitation. The time traces and the frequency contents of the unsteady aerodynamic blade force are discussed. Strong periodic influences of the incoming wakes and of potential effects of downstream blade rows can be observed. The amplitude and shape of the unsteady aerodynamic blade force depend on the interaction of the superimposed influences of the blade rows.
