This paper presents the results of an experimental cascade investigation of the aerodynamic performance of a 1.524-cm (0.6-in.) blade height, low aspect ratio, highly loaded, cooled turbine. The experimental program was performed with a cold flow annual sector cascade with various geometric and aerodynamic perturbations. The perturbation included nozzle endwall contour, inlet turbulence and velocity distortion, stator and rotor solidity, rotor loading and nozzle cooling flow and point of injection. The turbine design evolved through a parametric analysis considering a turboshaft engine configuration required to have a 750-hr life at design power output and satisfy realistic mechanical constraints. The gas generator turbine configuration selected for investigation was a single-stage turbine with a turbine inlet temperature of 1316 C (2400 F) and an actual work output of 418.68 kJ/kg, (180 Btu/lb). The baseline turbine was sized for a stage work coefficient of 5.0 at the hub radius and an average flow coefficient of 0.675 for a best mechanical-aerothermodynamic compromise to meet realistic engine constraints.
