Unsteady flow around an oscillating plate cascade has been computationally studied, aimed at examining the predictive ability of a non-linear frequency solution method for hydro-elasticity analysis compared with a standard analytical solution. The comparison of computational and analytical solutions for flow around an oscillating plate configuration demonstrates the capabilities of the frequency domain method compared with the analytical solution in capturing the unsteady flow. It also shows the great advantage of significant CPU time saving by the frequency methods over the nonlinear time method. This approach is based on casting the unsteady flow equations into a set of steady-like equations at a series of phases of a period of unsteadiness. So, One of the advantages of this method compared with other conventional time-linearized frequency domain methods is that any steady flow solution method can be easily used in a straightforward simple method for modelling unsteady perturbations.
