The aim of this paper is to develop an approach to compute the three-dimensional, rotational, adiabatic, inviscid flow of a perfect gas in a transonic axial turbine stage. The time-dependent Euler equations, expressed in a cylindrical coordinate system, are solved using a time-marching method and a finite volume approach. The absolute flow is calculated in the stator, whereas the relative flow is computed in the rotor. A time-averaged blade row interaction is assumed. The method is applied to a transonic single-stage turbine. The calculated results agree well with the measured performance and three-dimensional aspects of the flow appear clearly.
