Short pin fins are often used as one of the blade cooling technologies inside the trailing edge of turbine blades. In our previous study we focused on the effects of pin inclination for overall cooling performance especially including heat conduction between the pins and endwall by both experiments and the conjugate heat transfer simulations, then the forwardly inclined pin-fins are found to effectively enhance the cooling, but we also found that the steady conjugate heat transfer simulation underestimates the cooling performance of the straight pin-fins due to highly unsteady flow structure. In this study the URANS is coupled with the steady thermal conduction by using the time smoothing method in the flow region, thus the underestimate of the heat transfer for the straight pin-fins was significantly improved.
