Unsteady phenomena in the flows of rotating machine wheels may be prompted by the passage of the blade cascade, by unsteady separation, or stall or by other spatial or space-time instabilities. In incompressible fluid, the problem often arises of computing the pressure, which requires an exact solution of a Poisson problem at each time step. We have developed a LES type numerical scheme for simulating large eddies in incompressible unsteady flows over long periods. This scheme uses a combination spectral-singularity solution of the Poisson problem for the pressure. Simulations with this method were compared with available experimental data for the SHF wheels. The flow in a single channel subjected to a periodicity condition was simulated for the design conditions (Qn) et partial flow rate (0,3Qn).
