Film Cooling Effectiveness Downstream of Trailing Edge Slots Including Cutback Surface Protuberances†
AbstractThe trailing edge of the high pressure turbine blade and vane presents significant challenges to the turbine cooling engineer. The current research has focused specifically on the effect of cutback surface protuberance, or “land”, shapes on film cooling effectiveness. A set of six different land geometries has been investigated in a large scale model of the trailing edge pressure side ejection slot exit. Slot height and width and lip height was maintained. Pressure sensitive paint was used to measure adiabatic film cooling effectiveness at five blowing ratios ranging from 0.6 to 1.4 in increments of 0.2. High-resolution full surface distributions of film cooling effectiveness both on the cutback surface and the top of the lands were recorded. It was found that tapering the lands did not significantly increase effectiveness on the lands and slightly reduced effectiveness near the lands. Using a diffuser shape improved average effectiveness greatly and gave the best overall performance up to the end of the lands except at the lowest blowing ratio of 0.6, where having no lands was slightly better.
