The three-dimensional viscous transonic time marching Denton code L0SS3D, and Dawes code BTOB3D are applied to the first stage rotor of the NACA 5-stage transonic compressor. Computing time per solution on a mini-supercomputer was about 9 hours for a mesh of 65 000 points. LOSS3D predicted pressure ratio and loss distributions reasonably well at design point, but did not quite satisfy the convergence criteria. BT0B3D tended to overpredict the total pressure ratio over the outer half of span due to an underprediction of loss in the complicated separated flow region triggered by shock boundary layer interaction on the suction surface, but prediction was good at 90% speed where shock boundary layer interaction was less severe. The use of a computationally convenient excessively large tip clearance is not recommended when shock-boundary layer interaction is expected, especially at off-design conditions.
