This paper presents measurements and the companion CFD predictions for a fully cooled, high-work single stage HP turbine operating in a short-duration blowdown rig. Part I of this paper presented the experimental approach, and Part II focuses on the results of the measurements and demonstrates how these results compare to predictions made using the Numeca FINE/Turbo CFD package. The measurements are presented in both time-averaged and time-accurate formats. The results include the heat transfer at multiple spans on the vane, blade, and rotor shroud as well as flow path measurements of total temperature and total pressure. Surface pressure measurements are available on the vane at midspan, and on the blade at 50% and 90% spans as well as the rotor shroud. In addition, temperature and pressure measurements obtained inside the coolant cavities of both the vanes and blades are presented. Time-averaged values for the surface pressure on the vane and blade are compared to steady CFD predictions. Additional comparisons will be made between the heat transfer on cooled blades and uncooled blades with identical surface geometry. This, along with measurements of adiabatic wall temperature, will provide a basis for analyzing the effectiveness of the film-cooling scheme at a number of locations.
