A numerical method for simulating quasi three-dimensional unsteady viscous compressible flow is developed and applied to blade flutter analysis. The Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations are solved in a time accurate manner on a continuously deforming computational mesh. Turbulence is accounted for by the inclusion of a two-layer algebraic turbulence model. This method is compared with measurements and a full velocity potential solver for two different subsonic compressor cascades and a range of flow conditions. Both methods are found to predict unsteady attached flows reasonably well. However, the Navier-Stokes solver picks up the pressure fluctuations associated with the unsteady leading edge separation bubble. These types of fluctuations have large amplitudes and tend to dominate the cascade’s aerodynamic damping behavior.
