A detailed experimental investigation of a small centrifugal compressor stage has been completed using laser transit anemometry. Measurements at the inlet and discharge of an impeller have been made while recording data relative to a blade passage. Classical primary and secondary flow regimes within the rotor have been shown plus several compact “cell-like” regions. Various components of velocity and turbulence intensity are presented. This study has demonstrated the capability of using the laser transit anemometer for investigating the kinematics of small, high speed turbomachinery components.
