A series of experiments are performed in an extensively instrumented axial flow research compressor to investigate the effects of different low reduced frequency aerodynamic forcing functions and steady loading level on the gust-generated unsteady aerodynamics of a first-stage rotor blade row. Two different two-per-rev forcing functions are considered: (1) the velocity deficit from two 90 deg circumferential inlet flow distortions, and (2) the wakes from two upstream obstructions, which are characteristic of airfoil or probe excitations. The data show that the wake-generated rotor row first harmonic response is much greater than that generated by the inlet distortion, with the difference decreasing with increased steady loading.
