Detailed heat transfer distributions over two opposite leading and trailing walls roughened by hemispherical protrusions were measured from a rotating rectangular channel at rotation number up to 0.6 to examine the effects of Reynolds (Re), rotation (Ro), and buoyancy (Bu) numbers on local and area-averaged Nusselt numbers (Nu and Nu¯) using the infrared thermography. A set of selected heat transfer data illustrates the Coriolis and rotating buoyancy effects on the detailed Nu distributions and the area-averaged heat transfer performances of the rotating channel. The Nu¯ for the developed flow region on the leading and trailing walls are parametrically analyzed to devise the empirical heat transfer correlations that permit the evaluation of the interdependent and individual Re, Ro, and Bu effect on Nu¯.
