An experimental and numerical study was performed about the influence of incoming wakes and the calming effect on a very high lift low pressure turbine rotor blade. The first part of the paper describes the experimental determination of the pressure loss coefficient and the heat transfer around the blade mounted in a high speed linear cascade. The cascade is exposed to incoming wakes generated by high speed rotating bars. Their aim is to act upon the transition/separation phenomena. The measurements were conducted at a constant exit Mach number equal to 0.8 and at three Reynolds number values, namely 190000, 350000 and 650000. The inlet turbulence level was fixed at 0.8%. An additional feature of this work is to identify the boundary layer status through heat transfer measurements. Compared to the traditionally used hot films, thin film heat flux gages provide fully quantitative data required for code validation. Numerical computations are presented in the second part of the paper.
