An existing one dimensional stagewise compressor stability analysis programme has been extended to incorporate a model for humidity and droplet evaporation. In its modified form the model shows the extent of stage re-matching when ingesting modest amounts of water. The water distribution throughout the flow is assumed to be homogeneous. The stage interactions of an aircraft engine compressor are investigated for different environmental operating conditions. The effects of humidity on stage loading are small while the evaporation of water causes a significant shift of the operating point along the characteristics.
