Up to now the reasons of reducing the secondary flow losses by using leaned blades, especially in the case of great incidence angle, have been little concerned with in published references. The experimental results in this paper have shown that the decisive factor reducing secondary flow losses in turbine stator cascades is the static pressure gradient along the blade height inside the cascade channel near the suction surface, especially in the rear part of it, because the negative pressure gradient in the hub region and the positive one in the tip region are beneficial for the boundary layer in both the regions to be sucked into the main stream region, consequently, the accumulation and the separation of the boundary layer have been weakened in both regions. Moreover, the effectiveness of applying the positively or negatively leaned blades is increased with the increase of a incidence angle, in the hub or the tip regions respectively.
