1. INTRODUCTION Unsteady flows after moving obstructions are widely spread in various technical applications. It is necessary to distinguish unsteadiness of two types: specially organised for intensification of working processes; caused by principle of operation of heat power and technological equipment. Despite the intensive growth of computer technique and successful development of new progressive numerical approaches, the results of physical experiments are the main basis for verification of different models in CFD. The modelling of flows with velocity periodic nonstationarity is often realised by means of moving cylinders or squirrel cage. The latter reproduces the peculiarities of flow after working blades in turbomachines.
1. INTRODUCTION During two last decades in IET NASU and IFFM PAS (Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery of Polish Academy of Sciences) experimental investigations of laminar-turbulent transition are carried out under conditions of interaction of different disturbances (turbulence, separation, periodic velocity unsteadiness, etc.). Taking into account the joint scientific interests of both organisations (IET NASU and IFFM PAN), namely comparison of flow characteristics with periodic velocity unsteadiness generated by squirrel cages is the object of given presentation.

For using the hydrodynamic characteristics after moving obstructions in further calculations, the shear external flow was replaced by its shearless equivalent. For this purpose in the every cross section the distributions of velocity and fluctuations were averaged in the range of y=D+d what corresponded the width of wakes spreading. 3.3 Total characteristics of external flow
