Effects of the reduced circular speed within the values range of λυ = 0.5 ... 1.25, the theoretical work coefficient Ηm = 0.2 ... 0.6 as well as the grid's density on the axial compressor's pressure are considered. The verification of the ANSYS CFX 11.0 program package is given which demonstrates the application of the three-dimensional computation method for designing stages of the axial compressor.
