Transonic Test Case
I am looking for a test case that examines transonic flow conditions (shocks, etc.) in an airfoil cascade. I would like references for an experimental study or a good CFD study that uses an experimental validation case.

I do not need anything complex.

I have heard of a standard benchmark transonic case. I believe it is called the (Ni-bump). If you know of a reference for this that would also help.

Re: Transonic Test Case
I did see in a research report from the VKI (von karman institute) where they compared numerical result to an exact solution of the euler equations over a cascade. send me an email and I'll remember to get it for you

Re: Transonic Test Case
Another well documented and widely used test case is Flow over a transonic bump by Bachalo and Johnson, AIAA J, v24, (437-443), 1986.
