A detailed experimental investigation was carried out to examine the three-dimensional boundary layer characteristics in a radial inflow turbine scroll. Some basic flow phenomena and growth of secondary flow were also investigated. In the inlet region of the scroll, the incoming boundary layer begins to have the skewed nature, namely the radially inward secondary flow caused by the radial pressure gradient. From the inlet region to the one third of the scroll circumference, the secondary flow grows so strongly that the most of the low momentum fluid in the incoming boundary layer are transported to the nozzle region.
