In the present work an algorithm for the numerical integration of the three-dimensional unsteady Euler equations in vibrating transonic compressor cascades is described. The equations are discretized in finite-volume formulation in a mobile grid using isoparametric brick elements. They are integrated in time using Runge-Kutta schemes. A thorough discussion of the boundary conditions used and of their influence on results is undertaken. The influence of grid refinement on computational results is examined. Unsteady convergence of results is discussed.
