A numerical study of the steady, viscous flow prediction capabilities of the three-dimensional turbine stage code R0T0R3 is presented. Computations were performed with RAI3DC, a cascade version of R0T0R3 capable of being run in a planar or annular mode. Computed results are compared with experimental data obtained for Hodson’s cascade, Kopper’s cascade, and United Technologies Research Center’s Large Scale Rotating Rig (LSRR) first-stage stator. The code’s predictive capability is assessed in terms of the accuracy of predicted airfoil loadings, performance (including secondary flows in the LSRR case), boundary layers, and heat transfer. A grid refinement study was conducted in the LSRR case in an effort to more accurately model the boundary layers on the airfoil and endwall surfaces. The effects of the inlet total pressure profile in secondary flow prediction were also assessed.
