An explicit, time-marching fractional-step solver for the calculation of the two-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations is presented. The advantage of using a fractional-step analysis is its simplicity and the fact that greater time-steps are allowed, since the stability criterion is less strict compared to other explicit solvers. Turbulence is modeled through a low-Reynolds k-ε model, for which a novel artificial viscosity scheme is implemented, ensuring a smooth ε-distribution close to solid walls. The method is used in order to numerically investigate the flow field in three different cascades, namely a highly loaded transonic linear turbine guide vane cascade in six different flow conditions, a transonic steam turbine cascade in two different flow conditions and a low supersonic compressor cascade. Calculations are performed using both H- and C-type grids.
