Recent measurements of the performance of a centrifugal fan subjected to inlet flow distortion are presented. Results of axial and multilobed distortion modes are discussed in the context of a previously published study to provide a more comprehensive evaluation of related fan performance degradation. Distortion parameters presented in the previous study are shown to be insufficient for the complete description of inlet distortion and further indicators are proposed.
