It has been shown that the secondary flows present within turbine nozzle guide vanes have a marked effect on heat transfer. The horse-shoe and passage vortices, for example, have a major impact on platform and vane suction surface heat transfer. To investigate these effects further, heat transfer and aerodynamic measurements have been made on an annular transonic turbine nozzle guide vane ring, with three different platform geometries. The measurements were taken in the Isentropic Light Piston test facility at RAE Pyestock at representative values of engine Reynolds number, Mach number and freestream gas-to-wall temperature ratio.

This paper compares and discusses the measured platform and vane suction surface Nusselt and Mach number distributions for the three different endwall profiles. Comparisons with theoretical flow and heat transfer predictions are presented.
