The prediction of losses in transonic flow in turbines is an important step in the design of turbine stages, but at the same time requirements of simplicity and speed are needed to allow the work of designers. The paper presents a procedure developed to match this goal. It uses classical codes, experimental correlations and simple geometrical models of the shock system. The result of a time marching method with standard mesh is used to run an Integral Boundary layer calculation in which shock wave interaction effects have been included. The shock system is made up of this information plus empirical correlation and a suitable procedure. A mixing calculation is then performed to get the downstream total pressure. The method has been tested with various kinds of turbine blades of which losses and data for calculations have been published. The results are quite good and the procedure appears simple and fast.
