This paper is part II of a comprehensive study on the blade leading edge sweep/bend of supersonic and transonic axial compressors. The paper explores and analyzes the kinematic characteristic variables of three-dimensional (3-D) swept shock surfaces. In the research field studying the sweep aerodynamics of axial flow compressors and fans, many types of high loading swept blades are under intensive study. So, in both direct and inverse design methods and experimental validations, an accurate grasp of the sweep characteristic of the blade’s 3-D swept shock surface becomes of more concern than before. Associated with relevant blading variables, this paper studies the forward and zero and backward sweeps of shock surfaces, defines and resolves every kind of useful sweep angle, obtains dimensionless sweep similarity factors, suggests a kind of method for the quantitative classification of 3-D shock structures, and proposes the principle of 3-D shock structure measurements. Two rotor blade leading edge shock surfaces from two high loading single stage fans are analyzed and contrasted. This study is the foundation of the kinematic design of swept shock surfaces.
