Performance of a Low-pressure Fan Stage with Reverse Flow
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1976 - Compressors - 61 pages
The reverse flow aerodynamic performance of a 51-centimeter-diameter fan stage is presented. The stage was tested with the variable pitch rotor blades set through feather at -75 deg, -80 deg, and -85 deg from design setting angle. Of the three tested the stage with the rotor blades set at -75 deg exhibited the highest pressure ratio and highest flow. For all three configurations, there was little or no flow in the inner third of the exit passage due to the rotor blade being almost perpendicular to the axial direction in the hub region.
