The potential pressure field caused by stator/downstream strut interaction is investigated analytically and experimentally. It is shown that the small disturbance theory using an actuator disk model gives a good prediction of the forward propagation of downstream pressure perturbations. The calculation method of stator tailoring to shield the upstream field from the effect of downstream struts is also shown and verified by experiments.
