The effect of blade row axial spacing on vortical and potential disturbances and gust response is studied for a compressor stator/rotor configuration near design and at high loadings using 2D incompressible Navier-Stokes and potential codes, both written for multistage calculations. First, vortical and potential disturbances downstream of the isolated stator in the moving frame are defined; these disturbances exclude blade row interaction effects. Then, vortical and potential disturbances for the stator/rotor configuration are calculated for axial gaps of 10%, 20%, and 30% chord. Results show that the potential disturbance is uncoupled; the potential disturbance calculated from the isolated stator configuration is a good approximation for that from the stator/rotor configuration for all three axial gaps. The vortical disturbance depends strongly on blade row interactions. Low order modes of vortical disturbance are of substantial magnitude and decay much more slowly downstream than do those of potential disturbance. Vortical disturbance decays linearly with increasing mode except very close to the stator trailing edge. For a small axial gap, lower order modes of both vortical and potential disturbances must be included to determine the rotor gust response.
