The results of an engine stall test and analysis program are described illustrating stall inducing phenomena, surge blowdown and repressurization, rotating stall inception and recovery, component interactions and install component characteristics. The data provide insight into the factors related to the real engine environment that affect the compression system stall inception, development and recovery processes. The results indicate that component system dynamic and aerodynamic interactions can dominate these processes.
