A numerical study has been performed to predict a three-dimensional turbulent flow and end-wall heat transfer in a blade passage. The complex three-dimensional flow in the end-wall region has an important impact on the local heat transfer. The leading edge horseshoe vortex, the leading edge corner vortices, the passage vortex, and the trailing edge wake cause large variations in the entire end-wall region. The heat transfer distributions in the end-wall region are calculated and the mechanism for the high heat transfer region has been revealed. The calculations show that the algebraic turbulence model lacks the ability to predict the heat transfer in the transition region, but it is valid in other flow region. The local high heat transfer downstream of the trailing edge is enhanced by the wake downstream of the trailing edge. The horseshoe vortex results a high heat transfer region near the leading edge and induces the leading edge corner vortices which cause high heat transfer on the end-wall at both sides of blade end-wall corner.
