The results of an experimental investigation on secondary flows in a linear cascade of turbine rotor blades are presented. To gain information on the turbulence related to the secondary flow development in turbine cascades, measurements have been carried out at eight normal sections in the passage and at a plane downstream of the trailing edge, using a constant temperature hot wire anemometer and a total pressure probe.

A high level of turbulent kinetic energy and turbulent shear stresses has been found to be associated with the passage vortex. This result confirms that secondary loss generation in cascades is related to the production of turbulent kinetic energy in the vortex flow and to its viscous dissipation.
