The mechanism of mixing in axial flow compressors has been investigated in two low-speed machines. For reasons of length this is described in two parts. Results in a four-stage compressor are described here in Part I and show that the mixing coefficients across the first and the third stators are of similar magnitude. Part I also describes the background and experimental facilities and techniques used in both parts together with the nomenclature and all the references. Part II describes the results from a large single-stage compressor. It also presents measurements of mixing in a simple two-dimensional duct, and presents conclusions for the whole investigation.
