With this paper, results of a numerical investigation of the influence of the inlet condition variation on a stator vane suction side boundary layer and its separation tendencies are presented. The profile used for the examination is a so called high-lift-profile and designed for a laminar-turbulent transition over a steady separation bubble in a 1.5-stage low pressure turbine. Hence, the turbulence model must be capable for these effects. Especially, the stream line curvature has to be kept properly which leads to higher level turbulence models. The calculations were conducted with a two-dimensional Navier-Stokes solver using a finite volume discretisation scheme. The turbulence models used are the v′2 -f and the LCL turbulence model which are both of higher order. In the first part of the paper, wake free averaged inflow conditions were used. Through this, the influence of the mean flow on the bubble could be examined.
