Especially in the turbulence research, it is necessary to record three velocity components concurrently. As a result, all six components of the Reynolds stress tensor and higher-order velocity correlations can be determined. This article assesses the three-dimensional flow field of a linear transonic compressor cascade. The velocity field within the blade passage is measured using a 3D-LDA system. This requires a coincident measurement of the velocity. However, this leads to a significant reduction in the data rate. To circumvent this problem there is the general approach of a record interval window to the subsequent generation of coincident data. In comparison to previous publications, a transonic flow is considered here. For a coincident measurement it is essential that all velocities are perpendicular to each other. Because of limited arrangement possibility of the probes the system measures three non orthogonal velocity components. Therefore, a coordinate transformation is necessary. Due to uncertainties in the exact laser alignments, the transformation matrix for this arrangement is determined experimentally. This paper deals with these two problems, for a case similar to gas turbine conditions. The influence of the time interval on the measured data is compared with coincident data. Within the cascade different measuring planes are considered and a time step study is carried out.
