This paper is Part III of a comprehensive study on the blade leading edge sweep/bend of supersonic and transonic axial compressors. For the curved leading edge shock surfaces generated by high loading swept axial flow rotors, using an analytical structure model of 3-D shock surface, this paper investigated the characteristics of the shock surface structure, then calculated the distributions of the flow variables in front of and behind the shock. The research focused on the influences of the relatively forward- or backward-swept rotors on the flow field behind but near the leading edge shock surface. By the analytical model, this paper answered the one hand of the question of the swept rotors’ functions. For the first time it quantitatively showed the existence of the phenomenon of 3-D shock induced span-wise and circumferential mixing in the primary flow.
