Comparisons with experimental heat transfer and surface pressures were made for seven turbine vane and blade geometries using a quasi-three-dimensional thin-layer Navier–Stokes analysis. Comparisons are made for cases with both separated and unseparated flow over a range of Reynolds numbers and free-stream turbulence intensities. The analysis used a modified Baldwin-Lomax turbulent eddy viscosity model. Modifications were made to account for the effects of: (1) free-stream turbulence on both transition and leading edge heat transfer; (2) strong favorable pressure gradients on relaminarizations; and (3) variable turbulent Prandtl number on heat transfer. In addition, the effect on heat transfer of the near-wall model of Deissler is compared with the Van Driest model.
