The design and fabrication of low speed axial flow compressor blades has been carried out. The blade base profile design was done using the Joukowski conformal transformation of a circle. Three sets of blades at three different blade camber angles ¦È = 20o fabricated from the base profile out of compressed paper. The blades were tested in a simple smoke tunnel. The results showed that the degree of flow separation from the blade surface is affected by the curvature of the blade. The 20o done to arouse the minds of young readers towards blade design, particularly the readers in different parts of the world where there is inadequate teaching equipment for students to really put to test what they had been taught in class.
