Heat transfer coefficients are experimentally measured in a rotating cooling channel with slot ejection. This test section is used to model an internal cooling passage near the trailing edge of a gas turbine blade where the spent coolant exhausts through the slot to the mainstream flow. The regionally averaged heat transfer coefficients are measured in a wedge-shaped cooling channel (Dh = 2.22cm, Ac = 7.62cm2 ). Due to the discharging of coolant through the slots, the local mass flow rate decreases along the streamwise direction. The effect of slot ejection enhances the heat transfer near the narrow side of the channel, while heat transfer on the wide side decreases. The inlet Reynolds number of the coolant varies from 10000 to 40000 and the rotational speeds varies from 0 to 500 rpm. The inlet rotation number is from 0 – 1.0. The local rotation number and buoyancy parameter vary by the rotational speeds and the local Reynolds number in each region. The effect of rotation in this wedge-shaped channel with slot ejection is presented in this paper. This study shows that the rotation number and buoyancy parameter are good parameters to quantify the effect of rotation with slot ejection over the extended ranges achieved in this study.
