Turbine cascade aerodynamics

Experimental studies of typical 3D design techniques: lean, bowing and sweep. Research leads to evaluation of the impact of blade axis on flow field in terms of secondary effects (loss and angle deviation).

Wide range of operating conditions can be operated. Historichallly studies was carried out on variation of solidity, stagger angle and incidence, today we analysis also Reynolds number effects (boundary layer transition and surface roughness).

Performance evaluations of one andĀ  a half turbine stage, and detailed measurements by means of multi holeĀ  pressure probes.
