The objective of the present work is the experimental investigation of the effects of rotation on the heat transfer due to a single row of circular jets impinging on a curved surface, relevant to turbine blade cooling. The local transfer coefficients were determined by means of the naphthalene sublimation technique using the analogy between heat and mass transfer. Spanwise average transfer coefficients were deduced from the local measurements and are discussed relative to the transfer in a nonrotating system. Results are presented for different stagger angles, jet Reynolds numbers and geometry parameters. The geometry parameters that were varied included the spacing between adjacent jet holes and the distance between the jet hole plate and the impingement surface. It is found that rotation does not improve heat transfer but can reduce it significantly, up to 40% below the transfer coefficient in a nonrotating system. Therefore, the effects of rotation have to be accounted for accurate predictions of the cooling pattern generated by impinging jets.
