Abstract

Numerical simulations and laboratory measurements are performed to study the flow field and heat transfer in a linear cascade of turbine vanes. It is shown that endwall axial profiling results in flow reversal upstream of the vane, an effect that lowers the Stanton number for the baseline flow near the vane leading edge compared to previous work in a flat-endwall geometry. Predictions of the total pressure loss coefficient show that the peak levels are higher than those measured.
