A generic code DYNTECC has been adapted to perform a parametric study of the effect of inlet flow distortion on the stability of the Pratt and Whitney TF30 engine. This code was developed at Arnold Engineering Development Center, USA, for single and dual spool systems. It was modified at AMRL to accommodate the particular geometry of the TF30 engine. The stage characteristics needed to operate DYNTECC were derived from experimental data for the fan and low pressure compressor. For the high pressure compressor they were derived using the STGSTK code developed at NASA Lewis Research Center. This program was modified at AMRL to include real flow effects that were in turn derived using yet another adapted code CASCAD. The code was primarily used at AMRL to predict the onset of system instability due to simulated full-face rapid inlet temperature ramps typical of those caused during armament firings. It was also run with sinusoidal total pressure oscillations of varying amplitudes and frequencies at the inlet. The code predictions were compared with available data whenever possible, and were found to be consistent with the observed experimental trends.
