The paper presents a study of corner separations in hub to blade region at various operation conditions towards compressor stall. It is known that for compressor flows with low or none separations computation fluid dynamics with RANS methods work quite well, however, for highly separated flows they are no longer entirely valid. Therefore, several criteria were applied for prediction and quantification of possible corner separation, and the main interest of this work is in predicting the
