Abstract
The main scope of this thesis is to have a strong tool for a preliminar design and sizing of an axial compressor in a bi-dimensional way, this means that all the parameters are referred to the hub, to the midspan and to the tip of the blade.
This goal has been reached improving a pre existent MatlabTM code based on a monodimensional design.
The developed code, using different swirl law, allow to understand the behaviour of the flow in both the axial and radial direction of the compressor, furthermore it plot the blade shape, once at the midspan of each stages, so the rotor and the stator are plot togheter, once for each blade separately, at the hub, at the mid-span and at tip, to show how the blade has to be made to properly follow the...

This code has to be intended as an approach point for a more accurate design for axial compressor, e.g. CFD, that always need a good one and bi-dimensional preliminary design to obtain correct results; or it could be used in academic field for a better comprehension from the student of the phenomenas that take place in this kind of machine.
