      The high-speed multistage compressor test facility, W7 in the Engine Research Building at NASA Glenn Research Center, was used to run this test. The inlet to the core compressor modeled the inlet conditions to a high-pressure compressor (HPC) of an engine, inclusive of fan frame struts and a transition duct from the low-pressure compressor (LPC. A cascade is defined as an infinite row of equidistant similarly aerofoil bodies. The cascade is used to divert a flow stream with a minimal loss. The flow over an axial cascade presents a complicated intra blade fluid dynamic interaction that causes the flow to behave differently than the flow over a single aerofoil blade. A cascade tunnel in which different shapes of cascades could be tested. This study focuses on local heat transfer characteristics on the tip and near-tip regions of a turbine blade with a flat tip, tested under transonic conditions in a stationary, 2-D linear cascade.

Õ Different types of fan blade flutter occur at the various compressor flow regimes. Sub/transonic stall flutter and two forms of supersonic started flow flutter have been studied in a straight cascade wind tunnel. Results show clearly that these three common forms of flutter can exist as single-degree-of-freedom (single-blade instabilities).

A technique is presented for producing a flow through a linear cascade of turbine blades of large chord which gives the pressure distribution around a blade the same as that obtained in an infinite cascade for Mach and Reynolds numbers typical of gas turbine operating conditions.
