The heat transfer distribution on the hub endwall of a model turbine vane passage was studied experimentally and by numerical simulation. The experiments were carried out in a low speed wind tunnel featuring a linear cascade of scaled-up inlet vanes. Measurements were made both without and with secondary air injection through slots located upstream of the vane leading edge using the transient liquid crystal technique. Results are presented for ReCax, in = 6.76 × 104 and blowing ratios of zero (no secondary air injection) and 1.3. Simulations were performed on unstructured grids using Fluent. A near-wall description of the flow field was employed. Turbulent stresses in the momentum equations were closed using the Spalart-Almaras model, and the turbulent heat flux in the thermal energy equation was closed using a constant turbulent Prandtl number. The agreement between the measurements and the simulations is generally good.
