... and two rows on the suction side. The coolant injects to one side of the blade, either pressure side or suction side. The presence of wake due to the upstream vanes is simulated by placing a periodic set of rods upstream of the test blade. The wake rods can be clocked by changing their stationary...

.... Consequently, a new model was built. It was learned that it was necessary to use a two-zone model of the flow entering the vaneless diffuser and to carefully model the two-zone degradation as the flow passes through the vaneless diffuser. The new model is presented with detailed testing. The impact upon future...
