A three-dimensional Euler analysis for turbomachinery flows on a C-type grid is presented. The analysis is based on the Beam and Warming implicit algorithm for solution of the unsteady Euler equations and is derived from the ARC3D code developed by Pulliam at NASA Ames Research Center. Modifications made to convert this code from external flow applications to internal turbomachinery flows are given in detail. These changes include the addition of inflow, outflow, and periodic boundary point calculation procedures. Also presented are the C-grid construction procedures. Finally, results of code experimental verification studies for three-dimensional compressor cascade and rotor flows are presented.
