This paper presents an experimental and numerical investigation on the influence of clocking on the boundary layer behaviour of the second stator in a 1.5-stage axial low pressure turbine. Surface mounted hot-film sensors were used to measure the quasi shear stress on the second stator and static pressure tappings to obtain the pressure distribution. All experiments were carried out at midspan for different clocking positions. The supporting numerical calculations were conducted with a two-dimensional Navier-Stokes solver using a finite volume discretization scheme and the v′2f turbulence model.
