Behaviour of an axial flow compressor with a butterfly valve

  1. Feb 8, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I just did a lab experiment that involved recording the heights of manometer tubes placed in different locations along the compressor in order to calculate pressure drops, air mass flow rate, isentropic efficiency. An electric motor provided the power to drive the compressor and the rotational speed was kept constant and multiple readings were taken with the butterfly valve in different positions and I need to know if the results I recorded were that expected for a compressor of this type but I cant find any experiments like this to compare to. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks
