In this paper the effect of rib spacing on heat transfer in a rotating two-passage channel (AR=2:1) at orientation angle of 135° was studied. Parallel ribs were applied on leading and trailing walls of the rotating channel at the flow angle of 45°. The rib-height-to-hydraulic diameter ratio (e/Dh ) was 0.098. The rib-pitch-to-rib-height (P/e) ratios studied were 5, 7.5, and 10. For each rib-spacing, tests were taken at five Reynolds numbers from 10,000 to 40,000 and for each Reynolds number, experiments were conducted at four rotational speeds up to 400 rpm. Results show that the heat transfer enhancement increases with decreasing P/e from 10 to 5 under non-rotation condition. However, the effect of rotation on the heat transfer enhancement remains about the same for varying P/e from 10 to 5. Heat transfer enhancement due to rotation can be correlated on all surfaces (leading, trailing, inner and outer walls and tip cap region) in the two-passage 2:1 aspect ratio channel.
