The work undertaken in this thesis involved the improvement of existing equipment for the study of unsteady flow in gas and steam turbines through experiments carried out with a water analogue. some of the phenomena studied were pressure waves generated by the turbine blades as they pass the nozzles, vortices formed by the flow leaving the nozzles, and separation from the suction side of the blades.
