The heat and flow characteristics of mist/steam two-phase flow in U-shaped internal cooling passage of gas turbine blade are studid numerically in this paper. The standard k-ε model was used as the turbulence model combined with the DPM model to calculate the influence of mist/steam mass ratio and mist diameter on flow and heat transfer of U-passage with different shaped ribs. The result indicates that under the same working condition, the U-shaped channel with 45 deg. V-shaped ribs has better heat transfer performance than other channels and heat transfer non-uniformity of the U-shaped channel with 75 deg. ribs is the worst among all channels studied in this paper. The heat transfer performance of the U-shaped channel with V-shaped ribs is higher than that of the channel with paralleled ribs. As for the mist/steam cooling in U-shaped passage with same ribs structure, heat transfer non-uniformity increases with the increasing of heat transfer performance. When mists diameter increases from 5μm to 15μm, the heat transfer performance of the Second-Flow-Passage increases obviously and the heat transfer non-uniformity increases at the same time. The heat transfer performance has not been further enhanced when the mists diameter continuously increases after mist diameter are larger than 10μm.
