Description: Note presenting an experimental investigation of the first stage of a two-stage turbine designed for free-vortex flow. The results of the investigation showed that highest adiabatic efficiency was attained when the turbine was operating near the design total-pressure ratio. Results regarding power and efficiency, weight rate of gas flow through the turbine, weight-flow distribution at stator-cascade outlets, stator and rotor flow angles at mean radii, radial distribution of flow angle, radial distribution of the rotor-outlet flow angle, radial distribution of the total pressures at the stator-cascade outlet, and radial distribution of rotor-outlet pressure are provided.
