An advanced CFD cede for turbine blade design and analysis has been developed. The non-skewed shifted periodic grids are used in the code. With this high quality grids, the accuracy of the solutions, particularly in loss predictions, are greatly improved. Extensive studies have been conducted for code verification and calibrations. Results show that the solutions are accurate and consistent. Numerical results are presented and compared with experimental data for different blade sections. Good agreements are observed between numerical prediction and test data for the cases compared.
