The material presented in this paper is part of a research project dedicated to investigate the fluid mean velocity distribution and the corresponding turbulence fluctuations at various cross-sections across the working and discharge chambers of a screw compressor, in order to characterise the flow development through the working chamber and its discharge port at different phase angles. The axial mean flow and the corresponding turbulent fluctuation were measured inside the machine, both upstream and downstream of the discharge port, with high spatial and temporal resolution using laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) at a rotational speed of 1000 rpm and a pressure ratio of 1.0.
