A three-dimensional turbulent flow analysis method is described based on transformations of the equations to follow an arbitrary curved passage center-line and allowing for passage area and aspect ratio variations. The numerical method is arranged to allow either parabolic or partially parabolic solution methods in the main passage direction. The method has been tested for radial turbomachine elements and comparisons are included with measured internal passage flows in a radial impeller.
