Part I of this paper presents a method and a computer program for the mean design of multistage axial compressors. This second part describes a method and an additional computer routine that use the basic mean line design to create a fully two-dimensional flow solution and a compressor design. The two-dimensional solution according to a selected swirl vortex function is calculated using streamline curvature throughflow equations and spanwise distribution of losses. An iterative calculation procedure slightly reshapes the initial flow path in order to retain the desired input flow coefficients. Other variables such as stage loading parameters are changed in order to obtain the desired overall pressure ratio. A spanwise distribution of certain stage parameters can then be adjusted to achieve desired radial flow field variations. The basic one-dimensional input data can be varied at any moment to obtain a new one-dimensional result and the corresponding two-dimensional solution. A new output is created instantaneously and can be used for further CFD analysis, external throughflow, blade-to-blade flow computations or mechanical and vibration analysis.
