Velocity profile measurements were performed on the flow in a mixed-flow diffuser with walls having equal cone angles. The aim of the present study is to understand the flow behavior and the relation between the flow patterns and the diffuser losses. The boundary layer flow accompanied by separation on the inner wall and the velocity normal to the diffuser walls were measured in detail to examine the three-dimensional flow behavior in the mixed-flow diffuser. Comparing with the radial diffuser, the mixed-flow diffuser had a more complicated flow mechanism as it had the pressure gradients of transverse and normal directions.
