- A turbine stator vane was tested in a two-dimensional cascade of 10 vanes and in a single-vane tunnel. The single-vane tunnel was a cold air version of a tunnel which will be used for high temperature heat transfer testing of cooled turbine vanes. The purpose of the investigation was to determine if the flow conditions in the single-vane tunnel were sufficiently similar to those of a 10-vane cascade to permit meaningful heat transfer testing. The vane was tested over a range of ideal exit critical velocity ratios. The principal measurements were vane surface static pressure and cross-channel surveys of exit static pressure, total pressure, and flow angle. A brief description of the test vane and tunnels is included. The results of the exit surveys, the vane surface pressure distributions, and overall performance in terms of flow and loss for the two test configurations are compared.
