The objective of the presented test program was to further experimentally investigate vane-indexing effect influence on the performance, noise and vibration of two-stage low-pressure turbine. Keeping the inlet conditions strictly constant during the tests, two turbine stages were experimentally investigated. Herein, some flow measurement results and the external characteristics for different circumferential positions of the stator vanes are described. Comparisons were made with numerical simulation and they showed good agreement. Experimental data and numerical simulations of stator vane surface pressures are presented to determine how the flow phenomena were affected by indexing of the airfoils for two cases: for nominal rotational speed and for off-design turbine conditions. In addition, correlation to acoustic noise and machine vibration level is presented. They have been found to be clocking dependent. The experimental investigations have been carried out on a two-stage turbine research facility at the Institute of Turbomachinery of the Technical University of Lodz, Poland.
