The aerodynamic coefficients of compressor blade sections in two-dimensional flow can easily and very accurately be determined by use of the well-known Lieblein correlations. The flow across the compressor blade sections is often quasi-two-dimensional with the axial velocity density ratio (AVDR) differing from unity. To establish simple correlations for this type of flow as well, the AVDR effect on the aerodynamic coefficients of compressor cascades is theoretically and experimentally investigated. This results in simple but accurate formulae for the calculation of the AVDR effect on the turning angle, the reference minimum-loss inlet angle, and the losses in terms of the wake momentum thickness and the diffusion ratio.
