This paper describes a fully explicit, time marching, corrected viscosity, finite volume method to solve the Euler equations in a cylindrical coordinate system. The rotational character of the incoming flow can be taken into account. On the outflow boundary, a generalized radial equilibrium condition is imposed. Blade rows of complex geometry can be handled. At present, the method has been used to calculate the flow through the nozzle vanes of the VKI low-speed turbine facility. The calculated results show good agreement with the experimental data for the spatial distribution of both the static pressure and the flow angle.
