In axial flow compressor, blade surface roughness is affected by many failure modes such as fouling, erosion, corrosion and foreign object damage. But with development of filter performance, particles with diameter larger than 2&mum cannot enter into compressor, so fouling is the most important influence factor which results in the variation of surface roughness. This study respectively discusses the effect of surface roughness on performance parameter when surface roughness is constant and linearly distributed. Finally, based on experiment result, reverse design method is applied to reconstruct the fouled compressor by combining laser triangulation sensor with compressor fouling test rig and then reconstructed solid model is imported into ANSYS CFX to simulate flow field. Result shows that the increase of surface roughness results in the decrease of pressure ratio, mass flow and efficiency.
