Predictions of the heat transfer rates on the hot surfaces of a turbine cascade blade passage as influenced by the turbulence models was examined. A zero equation turbulence model supplemented by a bypass transition model and a two equation low Reynolds number model were chosen for this study. The experimental data of Graziani et. al. were used for comparison. The comparisons suggest that at least for the experimental data considered in this work the use of a two-equation model does not provide an overall more accurate solution than the zero equation model. This conclusion is strengthened if one takes into account the relative economy of computations with the algebraic model.
