Understanding unsteady flow processes is key in the analysis of challenging problems in turbomachinery design such as flutter and forced response. In this paper a new visualization method for harmonic unsteady flow is presented. The method illustrates the direction in which unsteady waves are traveling and transporting energy by the direct visualization of the propagating pressure waves in terms of field lines constructed from the wave group velocity. The group velocity is calculated from the unsteady flow solution by assuming that the local unsteady pressure perturbation of interest can be represented by a single harmonic unsteady wave. The applicability of the method is demonstrated for three test cases including a linear cascade of two-dimensional flat plates and a linear cascade of two-dimensional compressor blade profiles.
