Abstract: The basic principles of the experimental-and-computational complex for predicting the subsonic flutter stability of aircraft gas turbine compressor blading are stated. Based on the approaches of physical modeling of phenomena observed under full-scale conditions, the similarity criteria are defined, which allow modeling the behavior of blade assemblies at their interaction with flow. The methodology for the experimental determination of non-stationary aerodynamic forces and moments acting on blades during their in-flow vibrations; the calculation of the dynamic stability of a blade assembly against flutter; the aerodynamic rig design and peculiar features of its components to perform testing of airfoil cascades are described. The results of testing of the developed experimental-and-computational complex are presented.
Key words: blade assembly, modeling, subsonic flutter, aerodynamic stability, prediction.
