A quasi-three-dimensional multigrid Navier-Stokes solver on single and multiple passage domains is presented for solving unsteady flows around oscillating turbine and compressor blades. The conventional “direct store” method is used for applying the phase-shifted periodic boundary condition over a single blade passage. A parallel version of the solver using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard is developed for multiple passage computations. In the parallel multiple passage computations, the phase-shifted periodic boundary condition is converted to simple in-phase periodic condition. Euler and Navier-Stokes solutions are obtained for unsteady flows through an oscillating turbine cascade blade row with both the sequential and the parallel code. It is found that the parallel code offers almost linear speedup with multiple CPUs. In addition, significant improvement is achieved in convergence of the computation to a periodic unsteady state in the parallel multiple passage computations due to the use of in-phase periodic boundary conditions as compared to that in the single passage computations with phase-lagged periodic boundary conditions via the “direct store” method. The parallel Navier-Stokes code is also used to calculate the flow through an oscillating compressor cascade. Results are compared with experimental data and computations by other authors.
