An experimental investigation of rotating stall and surge was carried out on a four stage axial flow compressor. Results of flow and blade temperature measurements in the compressor are presented. Internal temperature levels during rotating stall and surge are considerably higher than those obtained during unstalled compressor operation. In the pure rotating stall regime, the temperature is almost identical in all compressor stages and depends only on rotor speed and mass flow rate. During surge, the highest temperature is found at the tip diameter prior to the first stage rotor. The absolute level depends on rotor speed, mass flow rate (i.e. throttle position) and on the number of compressor stages. A model of the temperature changes in the multistage compressor during the surge cycle has been derived from the experiments.
