The three-dimensional, multi-stage, unsteady, turbomachinery analysis, TURBO, has been extended to predict the aeroelastic and aeroacoustic response behaviors of a blade row operating within a cylindrical annular duct. In particular, a blade vibration capability has been incorporated so that the TURBO analysis can be applied over a solution domain that deforms with a vibratory blade motion. Also, unsteady far-field conditions have been implemented to render the computational inlet and exit boundaries transparent to outgoing unsteady disturbances and to allow for the prescription of incoming aerodynamic excitations. The modified TURBO analysis has been applied to predict unsteady subsonic and transonic flows. The intent is to partially validate this nonlinear analysis for blade flutter applications via numerical results for benchmark unsteady flows, and to demonstrate this analysis for a realistic fan rotor. For these purposes, we have considered unsteady subsonic flows through a 3D version of the 10th Standard Cascade and unsteady transonic flows through the first stage rotor of the NASA Lewis, Rotor 67 fan. Some general correlations between aeromechanical stabilities and fan operating characteristics will be presented.
