The 11 Standard Configurations for Unsteady Flow Through Vibrating Axial-Flow Turbomachine-Cascades (STCF) were established by Torsten Fransson and Joe Verdon in the late 1980s. The Standard Configurations are a comprehensive database of experimental data and numerical solutions for unsteady flow resulting from blade vibrations in various 2D cascade geometries. This data has proved to be an invaluable resource to manufacturers and researchers over the last 30 years. The initial website was created by Markus Joecker.
The present database contains information on 11 different two-dimensional cascade geometries and the corresponding unsteady flow established by the vibrating blades. It is believed that this database is presently the most comprehensive database related to aeroelasticity in turbomachines in the open literature.
