In a low speed plane cascade tunnel, the outlet flow fields and the static pressure distributions on blade surfaces of the turbine rectangular stator cascades with a small aspect ratio (s=0.68) were measured in detail. The experimental results show that the blade curving can form the negative gradient of static pressure along the blade height in the lower region of the cascade and the positive one in the upper region. This can lead to the reduction of the intensity of the streamwise vortices and the aerodynamic loading on both sides of the blades and the endwalls. Therefore, the end crosswise secondary flow losses are decreased considerably. The use of the curvilinear leaned blades can not only improve the flow characteristics in the stator cascades, but also provide good inlet conditions for rotor cascades.
