We consider the problem of noise generat.ion by the int.eraction between upstream disturbances, of reduced frequency k, and a blade row. Here, we model just the effects of the blade mean loading by treating the hla,des as flat plates aligned at a nonzero angle of attack, 6, to the oncoming stream, and use asymptot,ic analysis in the realistic limit k >> 1, 6 <(1. Expressions for the upstream radiation are derived by making a consistent asymptotic expansion of the compressible Euler equat.ions, and our approach proceeds using a blend of rapid distortion theory (to treat tlie deformation of tlie disturbances by tlie mean flow), and matched asymptotic expansions (to treat the noise generation in the vicinity of each leading edge). The dependence of the radiation 011 tlie blade mean loading can then be investigated, and it is seen that even a relatively small value of 6 can have a significant effect, thanks to the O(k6) phase changes wbicli are introduced into the radiation components emanating from each leading edge.
