WALL FLOW IN A HIGHLY DEFLECTED FIXED CASCADE
Example of an internal flow whose organization plays a major part in the efficiency of a turbomachine blade cascade.
The visualisations were performed on a model similar to that tested in a wind tunnel and confirmed the periodicity of the flow,
the existence of vortices near the side wall, and the efficacy of blowing as a means to suppress these unwanted flow
