Alec Collins, programme manager of the RB211, notes that the original concept of the wide-chord fan came from Geoff Wilde, who had been in charge of the compressor design office and as early as 1950 produced a transonic blade design.
The evaluation was run on the Law/Wennerstrom single-stage transonic compressor rig at Wright Patterson AFB in Ohio.
