In this study, Large Eddy Simulation (LES) was applied to predict the boundary layer development within unsteady wake induced linear turbine cascade of Low Pressure turbine (LPT) blades. In the calculation, unsteady wake was simulated by moving cylindrical bars upstream of the blade. The Multiblock method with a parallel computational algorithm was introduced to use the large computational domain with necessary grid refinement. It was demonstrated that the results were good agreement with experiments, and confirmed that a separation bubble of suction side was suppressed by the incoming wakes. Under the condition of significant effect of compressibility, separation point and reattachment point moved to the rear of the blade. In addition, under the condition of low Reynolds number, loss coefficient showed a tendency depending on Strouhal number.
