The internal flow in turbomachinery is inherently unsteady, and the endwall losses are major sources of lost efficiency in high-pressure turbine cascades. Therefore, the investigation of the unsteady endwall flow interactions is valuable to improve the performance of high-pressure turbines. Unsteady and steady numerical investigations of endwall flow interactions of 1.5-stage shrouded turbines with straight and bowed vanes are performed using a three-dimensional Navier-Stokes viscous solver. Emphasis is placed on how unsteady stator-rotor interactions affect shrouded turbine endwall secondary flows, on the basis of which the feasibility of incorporating the unsteady endwall flow effects in the control of secondary flows is discussed in detail. Results from this investigation are well presented and discussed in this paper.
