Heat-flux measurements are presented for the un-cooled blades of a one-and-one-half stage turbine operating at design corrected conditions with a fully cooled upstream vane row and with rotor disk cavity purge flow. The paper highlights the differences in blade heat flux and temperature caused by uniform, radial, and hot streak inlet temperature profiles. A general discussion of temperature profile migration is provided in Part I, and Part III presents data for hot streak magnitudes and alignments. The heat-flux and fluid-temperature measurements for the blade airfoil, platform, angel wing (near the root), and tip as well as for the stationary outer shroud are influenced by the vane inlet temperature profile. The inlet temperature profile shape can be clearly observed in the blade Stanton Number measurements, with the radial and hot streak profiles showing a greater redistribution of energy than the uniform case due to secondary flows. Hot gas segregation is observed to increase with the strength of the temperature distortion. Measurements for the hot streak profile show a segregation of higher temperature fluid to the pressure surface when compared to a uniform profile. The introduction of vane and purge cooling is found to further accentuate the flow segregation due to coolant migration to the suction surface.
