This paper presents an investigation of a circumferential feed-back channel located on shroud surface in rotor domain to find its effects on aerodynamic performance of a single-stage axial compressor, NASA Stage 37, using three-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations. Validation of numerical results was performed using experimental data for both of single rotor and single-stage compressors. A parametric study of the feed-back channel was performed using various geometric parameters related to the locations and shapes of the channel inlet and outlet. The numerical results showed that a reference circumferential feed-back channel increased the stall margin by 26.8% with 0.14% reduction in the peak adiabatic efficiency, compared to the case without the feed-back channel.
