axial-flow compressor

n
(General Engineering) a device for compressing a gas by accelerating it tangentially by means of bladed rotors, to increase its kinetic energy, and then diffusing it through static vanes (stators), to increase its pressure

Key to this engineering breakthrough was the successful demonstration of an efficient axial compressor developed by Claude Seippel of BBC.
Research of the separation modes of the operation of axial compressor stages demonstrated that for each frequency of rotor rotation there are two different characteristics, two pressure lines: one of them corresponds to non-separated flow about bladed disks (Fig.

It uses an actual gas turbine and consists of an axial compressor with 15 floors, six arranged combustion chambers to (90[degrees]) to the axial intake, a high-pressure turbine single floor (first floor), which drives the compressor and auxiliary equipment, as well as a low-pressure turbine (second floor), which drives the load.
