Grahic Jump Location
Geometry of the experimental test case used in this study: (a) overall setup; (b) blading details. Computational domain modeled the experiments (Ito et al., 1980).
Grahic Jump Location
Details of the SS grid used in the present study: (a) z=0 symmetry plane; (b) surface mesh in film-hole region
Grahic Jump Location
Solid blade loading curve indicates good agreement between computations and experiments
Grahic Jump Location
Profiles of loss coefficient for the solid blade obtained with each of the turbulence models. The RSM and RKE models yield the best agreement with experiments.

Contours of turbulent kinetic energy normalized by average exit velocity (k/V22), showing excess turbulence computed with SKE and RNG models
Grahic Jump Location
Pitchwise-averaged downstream loss coefficient for SS injection: (a) overall; (b) increase due to film cooling
Grahic Jump Location
Profiles of downstream loss coefficient for SS injection
Grahic Jump Location
Pitchwise-averaged downstream loss coefficient for PS injection: (a) overall; (b) increase due to film cooling
Grahic Jump Location
Effect of density ratio on area-averaged loss coefficient for SS injection. Significant influence is observed when plotted versus M(a), but not when plotted versus I(b).
