An investigation of the nature of high velocity air flow in the mid-layer of a 180 degree rectangular cross sectioned bend was made« Total and static pressure and impact temperature traverses were made at 20 degree intervals around the bend, Tito zones of flow were found to exist in this layer. The main stream of air, which approximates a free vortex, is progressively moved outward by a turbulent forced vortex extending outward from the inner wall. A negative total temperature gradient extends inward in the forced vortex while total temperature is constant in the free vortex, A method of observing boundary layer flow pattern is described.
