In this contribution, a Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) analysis was carried out, to get detailed information about the unsteady flow behavior and loss generation in a turbine cascade at moderate Reynolds numbers. A comprehensive comparison study with experimental data was conducted to validate the LES results. Compared to Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) results, the LES shows a much better agreement with the measured values of the profile loss coefficient, downstream velocity profile, and blade pressure distribution. The unsteady separation and reattachment process was covered well by the LES approach. The power spectral density (PSD) profiles at several positions of the downstream wake were compared and analyzed. Although the results of the LES show mainly a good agreement with the experimental values, there are still some deviations at high frequency. In summery the present case study indicates the high potential of LES especially in case of moderate Reynolds numbers with flow separation.
