Numerical simulations were performed to predict the film cooling effectiveness and the associated heat transfer coefficient on the leading edge of a rotating blade in a 1-1/2 turbine stage using a Reynolds stress turbulence model together with a non-equilibrium wall function. Simulations were performed for both the design and off-design conditions to investigate the effects of blade rotation on the leading edge film cooling effectiveness and heat transfer coefficient distributions. It was found that the tilt stagnation line on the leading edge of rotor moves from the pressure side to the suction side, and the instantaneous coolant streamlines shift from the suction side to the pressure side with increasing rotating speed. This trend was supported by the experimental results. The result also showed that the heat transfer coefficient increases, but film cooling effectiveness decreases with increasing rotating speed. In addition, the unsteady characteristics of the film cooling and heat transfer at different time phases, as well as different rotating speeds, were also reported.
