New blading concepts as used in modern transonic axial-flow compressors require improved loss and deviation angle correlations. The new model presented in this paper incorporates several elements and treats separately blade-row flows having subsonic and supersonic inlet conditions. The second part of the present report focuses on the extension of a well-known correlation for cascade losses at supersonic inlet-flows. It was originally established for DCA-bladings and is now modified to reflect the flow situation in blade-rows having low-cambered, arbitrarily designed blades including precompression blades. Finally, the steady loss increase from subsonic to supersonic inlet-flow velocities demonstrates the matched performance of the different correlations of the new model.
