A lifting surface theory is developed to predict the unsteady three-dimensional aerodynamic characteristics for a rotating transonic annular cascade of swept blades. An improved method is used to solve the integral equation for the unsteady blade loading. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate effects of the sweep on the blade flutter and on the acoustic field generated by interaction of rotating blades with a convected sinusoidal gust. It is found that, in the case of transonic rotors, the magnitude of total aerodynamic work due to the blade vibration is reduced at large sweep angles, however blade sweep is not beneficial for noise reduction.
