The object of this paper is to provide a reliable tool to carry out the parametrical studies of post-stall behaviors in multistage axial compression systems. An adapted version of the 1.5D Euler equations with additional source terms is discretized with a finite volume method and are solved in time by a fourth-order Runge–Kutta scheme. The equations are discretized at mid-span both inside the blade rows and the non-bladed regions. The source terms express the blade-flow interactions and are estimated by calculating the velocity triangles for each blade row. Additional source terms are introduced to represent the effects of inlet disturbances on post-stall behaviors and the physical analysis is therefore proposed to explain the phenomenon.
