This thesis is concerned with experimental studies of nucleating and wet steam flows over cascades of turbine blading. To simulate conditions in actual turbine flows it is necessary to produce nucleation in sub-sonic flows. has been achieved by the blow-down technique. The classical nucleation theory and the equations describing the growth of droplets are outlined in the literature survey. Application to one- and two-dimensional flows of condensing steam are also given. This is followed by a brief account of the effects of wetness on the flow through turbines.
