This lesson covers the fundamental principles of axial flow compressor dynamics. It delves into the three-dimensional flow features in an axial flow compression machine, explaining how the flow develops inside the blade passage. The lesson also discusses the mathematical forms used to capture these flow features. It further explores the concept of radial equilibrium of forces and how it governs the radial movement of the flow. The lesson also introduces the free vortex law, a design principle for axial flow compressors. The lesson is enriched with illustrative examples, such as the analysis of a fluid element inside a blade passage, to help learners understand these complex concepts.
