The heat transfer characteristics of a rotating pin-fin roughened wedge shaped channel have been studied. The model incorporates ejection through slots machined on the narrower end of the wedge, simulating a rotor blade trailing edge. The copperplate regional average method is used to determine the heat transfer coefficient; pressure taps have been used to estimate the flow discharged through each slot. Tests have been conducted at high rotation (≈ 1 ) and buoyancy (≈ 2) numbers, in a pressurized rotating rig. Reynolds Numbers investigated range from 10,000 to 40,000 and rotational speeds range from 0–400rpm. Pin-fins studied are made of copper as well as non-conducting garolite. Results show high heat transfer coefficients in the proximity of the slot. A significant enhancement in heat transfer due to the pin-fins, compared with a smooth channel is observed. Even the non-conducting pin-fins, indicative of heat transfer on the end-wall show a significant enhancement in the heat transfer coefficient. Results also show a strong rotation effect, increasing significantly the heat transfer coefficient on the trailing surface — and reducing the heat transfer on the leading surface.
