Endwall Heat Transfer and Shear Stress for a Nozzle Guide Vane with Fillets and a Leakage Interface
MetadataShow full item record
Results from these studies indicate that the secondary flow has a large influence on the coverage area of the leakage coolant. Increased leakage flow rates resulted in better cooling effectiveness and coverage, but also higher heat transfer rates. The two fillet geometries tested affected coolant coverage by displacing coolant around the base of the fillet, which could result in undesirably high gradients in endwall temperature. The addition of a large fillet to the endwall-airfoil junction, however, reduced heat transfer, even when upstream leakage flow was present.
