A calculation system has been set up to predict both the internal flow field and the overall performance of a transonic compressor blade row. The system iterates between an inviscid-viscous time-marching blade-to-blade (S1) treatment and a streamline curvature throughflow calculation for the pitchwise-averaged flow in the meridional plane (S2). A blade geometry package and a data transfer/display program are used to link the S1 and S2 methods to give a semi-automatic convergence procedure. The only empirically-based correlation or correction required is an extra loss imposed near the blade hub and tip to allow for end effects. The system has been applied to a high bypass ratio transonic fan rotor near design point. The converged solution was in good agreement with the measured performance.
