The J83 turbojet engine was a high-performance, lightweight engine with a maximum thrust of 2450 lb, a diameter of 18 in., and a weight of approximately 300 lb. The compressor for this engine was a seven-stage, transonic, axial-flow compressor with an inlet tip diameter of 15.2 in. and a hub-lip ratio of 0.433. Details of the aero-thermodynamic design of this compressor and the problems encountered during its development are given in this paper.
