Test results obtained from a two-stage fan are analysed and the reasons that caused the design performance target not to be attained are presented in this paper. Addition of a partspan shroud on rotor 1 caused higher losses and changed radial distribution of parameters. Modification on the flowpath and chord length of stator 1 resulted in excessively high inlet Mach number and flow separation in the hub region. The high load and high incidence at the hub of rotor 2 caused higher losses and reduced stall margin of the fan.
