An assessment of several three-dimensional inviscid turbine aerodynamic computer codes and loss models used at the NASA Lewis Research Center is presented. Five flow situations are examined, for which both experimental data and computational results are available. The five flows form a basis for the evalution of the computational procedures. It was concluded that stator flows may be calculated with a high degree of accuracy, whereas rotor flow fields are less accurately determined. Exploitation of contouring, leaning, bowing, and sweeping will require a three-dimensional viscous analysis technique.
