This paper presents the relation between circumferential fluctuation and the geometric and flow parameters. The governing equations are derived by circumferentially averaging the three-dimensional (3D) Navier-Stokes equations. Different types of compressor cascades are simulated and the circumferential fluctuation terms are extracted according to the definition of circumferential average. Three different blade profiles are chosen, including CDA, C4 and NACA65 profile, respectively. The peak value of circumferential fluctuation terms often occurs at the leading or the trailing edge and increases as the radius grows. Meanwhile, the circumferential fluctuation terms exist at the inlet of the blade which can be accurately calculated. 0°, 15° and 30° camber angles are chosen to study the influence of camber angle. When the camber angle is smaller, the flow is more uniform and therefore, the value of circumferential fluctuation is lower. Different incidence angles are compared to discuss the relationship between circumferential fluctuation and incidence angle. For specific term of circumferential fluctuations, the distribution curves are different.
