Unsteady and time-averaged flow fields of a single-stage axial compressor with a splitter rotor working in design conditions are simulated and analyzed with 3-D unsteady CFD code. The results show that strong unsteady flow exists in the rotor passage. Splitter reconstructs the pressure distribution in the rotor passage, changes load distribution of the rotor, and controls the flow near the rotor-blade. Splitter affects the unsteady static pressure distribution and fluctuation on principle blade, splitter and stator.
