In the present contribution the results of two three-dimensional viscous flutter analyses for a turbine cascade, Standard Configuration no. 11, are presented. The steady state and transient flow simulations were performed using the commercially available CFD solver ANSYS CFX 13.0 and a modified version of the CFD solver TBLOCK developed by Denton which is widely used in turbomachinery industry. The flutter analyses are performed under two different flow conditions. A subsonic, attached flow case and an off-design transonic case with a separated flow region near the trailing edge and a normal shock which are both located on the suction side. For each flutter analysis, the aeroelastic solution is computed for a large number of interblade phase angles. The results of ANSYS CFX and TBLOCK are compared to one another as well as to other CFD codes and experimental data. To reduce computing time, a phase-shifted boundary condition was implemented in TBLOCK. First results are shown in comparison to ANSYS CFX and its new implemented Fourier transformation method.

The results of TBLOCK and ANSYS CFX agree well with experimental results. First results applying the phase-shifted boundary condition show that this method is suitable for calculating the aerodynamic damping with less numerical effort.
