It is understood that the flow field calculation for the high-loaded super- or transonic compressor in inviscid gas model is essential in order to minimize the complexity of viscid calculation and, hereof the characteristic method has been often adopted for its relative effectiveness. However, due to the irregular grids and complex boundary conditions in turbomachines some difficulties still remain. This paper introduces a simpler and more practical characteristic method adopting reverse directional differentials for solving supersonic S2 flow field in supersonic or transonic compressors.
