Abstract:

The aerodynamic interaction between the rotors and stators of a large scale axial turbine stage have been studied experimentally. The data included measurements of the time averaged and instantaneous surface pressures and surface thin film gage output on both the rotor and stator at midspan. The data also included measurement of the stator suction and pressure surface time averaged heat transfer at midspan. The data was acquired with rotor-stator axial gaps of 15 and 65 of axial chord. The upstream potential flow influence of the rotor on the stator was seen as well as the downstream potential flow and wake influences of the stator on the rotor. The second phase of the program was an investigation of the nature of the full-span steady flow over the rotor with incidence varying up to negative incidence stall. Full-span pressure distributions and surface flow visualization were acquired over the entire range of incidence. The data indicated separation-free flow and large radial flows on the pressure surface in the vicinity of design incidence.
