    Abstract

    A high performance fan stage of pressure ratio 2.0 is being designed and developed under a joint programme between Chinese Aeronautical Establishment (CAE) China and National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), Bangalore, India.. Special features of the aerodynamic design are i) forward blade sweep and lean to increase the ability to bear intake distortion ii) reverse camber fan tip to reduce losses via pre compression iii) low aspect ratio of the blades to maximize stall margin. The blade will be fabricated using laminates of Carbon/Epoxy composites with tip shroud so as to limit the blade stress and deformation. Stress analysis was carried out using MSC/NASTRAN Finite Element Package. The fan stage has undergone a series of design improvements. Comparison of typical results obtained at NAL and BUAA is shown for the final version of the fan stage TTT98-29.
