This paper describes the results of cold flow turbine rig tests carried out on the original and redesigned compressor turbines of an industrial gas turbine engine. Some details of the aerodynamic design of the latest variant, a brief description of the advanced technology design methods used in this design, and a description of the test facility are included. Bulk stage performance and detail rotor exit radial-circumferential traverse results are presented. These test results demonstrate that the design point stage efficiency of the redesigned compressor turbine is about six percentage points higher than that of the original design.
