This paper describes a three-dimensional Euler solver for turbomachinery blade rows. The algorithm used is based on the explicit, four-step, finite volume method advocated by Jameson. Some of the issues addressed include the spatial interpolation scheme compatible with the wall boundary condition; the appropriate interpolation scheme for correctly interpolating a uniform absolute flow in a rotating coordinate system; smoothing techniques that assure global conservation; and code vectorization. The Euler solver has been tested on turbine nozzles, turbine rotors, centrifugal compressor rotors, transonic fans, and propellers, in all cases without any modification to the code or any parameter adjustment.
