REDUCING INLET FLOW NONUNIFORMITY IN TURBOMACHINES USING AUTOROTATING BLADING

The nonuniformity of gas flow to the inlet of axial compressors in marine engines significantly affects their characteristics and reliability. The author discusses the results of experiments showing how use of an autorotating blade can effectively reduce the nonuniformity of radial flow, while preventing the appearance and development of unstable processes in engine compressors.
