This paper describes extensive computer-based analytical studies on the details of unsteady flow behavior around oscillating airfoils in turbomachinery. A comparison was made between the two-and three-dimensional analyses for flow around a NACA0012 airfoil, and the separation vortex structure was examined in detail. From the numerical results, it was found that the separation vortex consisted of large-scale rolls with axes in the span direction, and rib substructures with axes in the stream direction. The three-dimensional analysis could simulate these rolls and ribs, but the two-dimensional analysis was inadequate to realize this vortex structure. In addition, the formation of ribs was found to be affected by the forced oscillation, and the transformation of rolls increased and the vortex structure became more fine as the oscillation frequency increased.
