In this paper the newly built large scale low speed axial flow research compressor at Dresden University of Technology is presented. This compressor rig serves three main purposes. Firstly, it shall improve the understanding of compressor aerodynamics (especially secondary flows) by allowing detailed flow field measurements without heavily disturbing the flow. Secondly, it will be used to examine new design concepts. Thirdly, the detailed measurements in the absolute and relative system will be used for the calibration of existing CFD-codes.

The design and the construction of the test rig which will allow an easy variation of the test configuration is described. A short view of the different data acquisition units for steady and unsteady measurement in the stationary and rotating system will be given.

The blading of the compressor in the first series of test runs simulates a middle stage of a contemporary high-pressure compressor. Measurement data will be compared with results of 3D-Navier-Stokes calculations that were performed at MTU München.
