Major objectives of the HOST program have been to improve hot section performance and life. Of specific interest here is the turbine, and in order to achieve the HOST objectives, accurate determinations of turbine blade pressure distributions and associated heat transfer rates are required. This paper applies a Navier-Stokes analysis employing the time-dependent Linearized Block Implicit scheme (LBI) of Briley and McDonald to two-dimensional and three-dimensional transonic turbulent cascade flows. In general, the geometrical configuration of the turbine blade impacts both the grid construction procedure and the implementation of the numerical algorithm.
