Three dimensional turbulent incompressible flows through linear cascades of turbine rotor blades with high turning angles have been analyzed numerically by using a generalized k-ε model which is a high Reynolds number form and derived by RNG (renormalized group) method to account for the variation of the rate of strain. A second order upwind scheme is used to suppress numerical diffusion in approximating the convective terms. Boundary-fitted coordinates are adopted to represent the complex blade geometry accurately. For the case without tip clearance, secondary flows and flow losses are shown to be in good agreement with previous experimental results. For the case with tip clearance, the effects of the passage vortex and tip clearance flow on the total pressure loss as well as their interactions are discussed. The flow within the tip clearance has been analyzed to illustrate the existences of the tip clearance vortex and vena contracta.
