This report describes the tests made to determine the flow conditions that exist ahead of the cascade and establishes a basis for future modification of the cascade test facility. The investigation was conducted with an existing adverse pressure gradient between the lower and upper measuring plane, Dead water regions were evident near the side walls of the test section, and large velocity differences were found to exist in the plenum. The investigation indicated that the boundary layer removal system, the provisions for which already exist, should be utilized for cascade tests involving adverse pressure gradients.
