This work aims at analyzing the flow behavior through a compressor cascade with the help of Computational Fluid Dynamics using the FLUENT software. An attempt has been made to study the effect of angle of attack or flow incidence angle on various flow parameters viz. static pressure, dynamic pressure, turbulence and their distribution in the flow field and predict the optimum range of angle of attack based on the above observations. Particularly, two principle parameters viz. the static pressure rise for the compressor cascade and the turbulence kinetic energy are considered in this analysis. It is observed that maintaining a slightly positive angle of flow incidence of +2 to +6 degrees is advantageous.
