Three-dimensional, turbulent flow is calculated in an elbow used by Stanitz for an experimental investigation of secondary flow. Calculated wall-static pressure distributions and distributions of stagnation-pressure loss, both spatial and as a function of mass-flow ratio, are in good agreement with Stanitz’ measurements, justifying the use of a relatively simple mixing-length viscosity model. The calculation procedure and the results of two-dimensional “inviscid” flow calculations used as the starting point for the present calculations are described in Part I of this paper. The computed flow field shows clearly the development of the passage vortices.
