A study was conducted to determine experimentally the flow behavior in combined scroll nozzle assembly of a radial inflow turbine. Hot film anemometry technique was used to measure the three-dimensional flow velocity in the scroll. The through-flow and secondary flow velocity components are measured at various points in three scroll sections.
