A parallel multi-block Navier-Stokes solver with the k-ω turbulence model is developed to simulate the 3-dimensional unsteady flow through an annular turbine cascade. Results at mid-span are compared with the experimental results of Standard Test Case 4. Comparisons are made between 3-dimensional and 2-dimensional, and inviscid and viscous simulations. The inclusion of a viscous flow model does not greatly affect the stability of the configuration.
