A two-dimensional, unsteady, Navier-Stokes computer code has been developed and applied to general cascade problems including inlet distortion and rotating stall. The code allows an arbitrary number of passages with periodicity conditions applied below the first and above the last passage, thus allowing flows in the computational domain to differ on a passage-by-passage basis. Calculations were performed for both C-grid and H-grid coordinate systems for single passage steady flows, multiple passage flows with steady and time-dependent inlet distortions and for multiple passage flows with a disturbance first imposed and then removed. This latter set of calculations demonstrated the ability of the procedure to simulate rotating stall flow fields. Calculations for conditions of incipient rotating stall showed good agreement with data for a J-79 stator set.
