Benenson, David M. (1957) Characteristics of propagating stall in axial-flow compressors. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-07082004-133942
Both small and large amplitude propagating stalls have been observed experimentally and their characteristics distinguished. The characteristics of the small amplitude propagating stall are such that the phenomenon can be described well by linearized theory. The characteristics of the large amplitude stall (which is the propagating stall phenomenon generally found in compressors) are such that the linearized theory is not adequate to describe the stall.
The propagating stall speeds determined from the small amplitude propagating stall experiments are in good agreement with those predicted by a particular formulation of the linearized theory.
