A pressure-loading tailoring scheme for transonic axial compressor blading is developed with the goal of managing the passage shock in order to reduce loss and enhance stability. This loading distribution along with other prescribed quantities is employed in a 3-D viscous inverse design procedure to refine initial rotor blade geometries of an advanced 2-stage transonic compressor. Key features of this loading strategy are discussed in the context of their impact on flow structure and performance. Results are presented showing the merits of this scheme.
