A design for a transonic axial-flow compressor is described, in which a rotor wheel with a low degree of reaction operates in subsonic flow and the stator operates in supersonic flow. A compressor was run as a single-stage compressor and an outlet pressure ratio equal to that of an orthodox compressor with 4 stages. Some discussion of another compressor in which both the rotor wheel and the stator operate in supersonic flow is also given.
