Axial compressors play a vital role in air breathing propulsion especially in jet engines by producing maximum pressure ratio per unit stage. Staling is the separation of flow from the compressor blade surface. Stall performance near the tip clearance, because of different possible discontinuities on the rotor blade has to be visualized properly. When some region of the rotor cross section is subjected to discontinuities it will have its effect on the remaining blade’s flow passages. Hence full rotor analysis is inevitable. Sufficient research efforts have been done both experimentally and numerically to increase the efficiency of the rotor blade stall margin at highest efficiency and also near blade flow passage operation. The objective of this paper is to give a holistic view of the most advanced technology and procedures that are practiced in the field of turbomachinery design and working operation of such machines. Importance is given to symbolize the most appropriate influence in the area of transonic compressors and to suggest further developments for increasing the performance in both aero and mechanical features.
