In this paper, delayed detached eddy simulations are performed to study wake flows of a turbine blade at a high subsonic exit Mach number, M2,is=0.79, and high Reynolds number, Re=2.7-2.8×106, based on the chord length and outlet velocity. It is found that a slight change in the trailing suction profile would have a big influence on the formation of wake vortex street, which is believed to be caused by the change in the boundary layer state near the trailing edge, and suction boundary layer with a fuller velocity profile tends to destabilize the wake flow, promoting the generation of wake vortex and enhancing the unsteady effect. Local spatial-temporal stability analyses of the wake velocity profiles suggest that wake flows with asymmetric velocity profiles might have a stabilizing effect. It is suggested that the vortex formation and its strength can be controlled by making some slight modifications on the rear blade suction surface, and the mixing loss in the wake can be reduced due to a weaker unsteady effect.
