The present study demonstrates the capabilities of a fluid/structure coupled computational approach which consists of an unsteady three-dimensional Navier-Stokes flow solver, TFLO, and a finite element structural analysis package, MSC/NASTRAN. The parallelized flow solver relies on a multi-block cell-centered finite volume discretization and the dual time stepping time integration scheme with multigrid for convergence acceleration. High accuracy is pursued with respect to load transfer, deformation tracking and synchronization between the two disciplines. As a result, the program successfully predicts the aeroelastic responses of a high performance fan, NASA Rotor 67, over a range of operational conditions. The results show that the unsteady pressure generated at the shock may act to damp or excite the blade motion mainly depending on the inter-blade phase angle. It is concluded that the level of sophistication in the individually sophisticated disciplines together with an accurate coupling interface will allow for accurate prediction of flutter boundaries of turbomachinery components.
