- This paper presents numerical simulations for a high-speed transonic compressor rotor, NASA Rotor 35, using an unstructured grid flow solver U2NCLE. It solves Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations using an arbitrary Mach number solution algorithm. Experiments were conducted at the NASA Glen Research Center to investigate compressor stability enhancement using steady and discrete tip injections. The mass injection upstream of the tip of a high- speed axial compressor rotor has shown effectiveness in suppressing stall in tip-critical rotors. This work presents numerical simulations of a high-speed compressor rotor with and without tip injections. Methods to model the flow injection are described. Numerical simulations are conducted at 80 and 100 percent of the design speed. Results show that numerical solutions are consistent with the experimental trends.
