An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the effects of variations in wall thermal boundary conditions on local heat transfer coefficients in stationary and orthogonally rotating smooth wall and two opposite-wall turbulated square channels. Results were obtained for three distributions of uniform wall heat flux: asymmetric, applied to the primary wall only; symmetric, applied to two opposite walls only; and fully-symmetric, applied to all four channel walls. Measured stationary and rotating smooth channel average heat transfer coefficients at channel location L/Dh = 9.53 were not significantly sensitive to wall heat flux distributions. Trailing side heat transfer generally increased with Rotation number whereas the leading wall results showed a decreasing trend at low Rotation numbers to a minimum and then an increasing trend with further increase in Rotation number. The stationary turbulated wall heat transfer coefficients did not vary markedly with the variations in wall heat flux distributions. Rotating leading wall heat transfer decreased with Rotation number and showed little sensitivity to heat flux distributions except for the fully-symmetric heated wall case at the highest Reynolds number tested. Trailing wall heat transfer coefficients were sensitive to the thermal wall distributions generally at all Reynolds numbers tested and particularly with increasing Rotation number. While the asymmetric case showed a slight deficit in trailing wall heat transfer coefficients due to rotation, the symmetric case indicated little change whereas the fully-symmetric case exhibited an enhancement.
