A reduced-order model for stall flutter of turbomachinery is presented. The model is based on simplified physics (actuator disk modeling of bladerows, typical section aeroelastic model) and the measured steady performance characteristic. The model is not intended to be predictive, though it has been shown to be “tunable” to stability measurements of the test rig. The objective of the effort is to estimate the relative sensitivity of flutter damping to system parameters. It is found that predictions are in good agreement with measured test rig data and industry experience.
