The effects of inhomogeneous inlet flow conditions on compressor behavior are being experimentally investigated on the transonic compressor test rig (TSV2) as part of a research project. For this purpose, the inlet inhomogeneity is generated via a so-called suction house, which deflects the air by 90° before it enters the compressor. Newly developed traversing devices at different axial positions allow a measurement of the flow channel over the entire circumference. In this master thesis, the circumferentially distributed measurement data will be evaluated, visualized and interpreted.
- Literature research and familiarization with the problems of inhomogeneous inlet flow conditions
- Support during the execution of the experiments at the compressor test bench
- Extension of the evaluation tools using MATLAB
- Evaluation, visualization and interpretation of the measurement data
