An investigation of one and half axial turbine stage configuration was carried out in a closed-loop wind tunnel. The investigation was addressed to that impact how the previous stage outlet flow field influences the flow structures in the next stator in steam multistage turbines. The stage - stator interaction has been studied in this work. The detailed measurement with a pneumatic probes and fast response pressure probes behind the rotor and the second stator were performed to gain the useful data to analyze the impact. The detailed flow field measurement was carried out in the nominal stage regime (given by the stage isentropic Mach number 0.3 and velocity ratio u/c 0.68). The clocking effect of the stators is discussed and detailed unsteady flow analysis is shown.
