Analysis of transonic flow through a cascade of airfoils is investigated using the finite element method. Development of a computational grid suitable for complex flow structures and different types of boundary conditions is presented. An efficient pseudo-time integration scheme is developed for the solution of equations. Modeling of the shock and the convergence characteristics of the developed scheme are discussed. Numerical results include a 45 deg staggered cascade of NACA 0012 airfoils with inlet flow Mach number of 0.8 and angles of attack 1, 0, and −1 deg.
