The aerodynamic development of a small high-speed radial compressor for the US Army 10-kw turboalternator is discussed, including initial performance deficiencies arising from blade contour discrepancies. Design performance requirements were attained by correcting these discrepancies and subsequently were exceeded with further geometry refinements. Aerodynamic testing included an investigation concerning the effect of shroud axial clearance on compressor performance and showed that abradable shrouds are desirable for small compressors.
