The contribution deals with numerical modelling of flow through the shaft labyrinth seal for various geometric configurations and operating states. The objective is to obtain dependency of the mass flow rate through the seal and the outlet flow angle from the seal on the pressure ratio and the rotation speed for various seal clearances and other geometrical parameters. The results will be used as a background for modification of the test-rig for axial turbine stage.
