The rotation-curvature correction proposed by Spalart and Shur is implemented in the Display FormulaγRe~θt transition model of Langtry and Menter. The correction term modifies the turbulence production such that it is damped in convex curvatures and enhanced otherwise. The curvature corrected transition model is first validated on a U-shaped channel flow for which experimental data and reference numerical results are available. The improved prediction capability is then assessed on a series of well documented two-dimensional turbomachinery problems. A better agreement with experimental data is observed in the simulation of the transition onset, which leads to an improved estimation of parameters of practical interest such as the heat transfer and pressure coefficient.
