Abstract

The double turning areas ribbed serpentine channel with lateral outflow is an important structure for designing the internal systems of turbine blade. The current work similarly simplifies the internal channel of the real blade. The Nusselt number and pressure coefficient distribution of the double turning areas ribbed serpentine channel with different outflow ratios are numerically researched under static and rotating conditions. The Realizable k-ε turbulence model with enhanced wall treatment is used in the numerical simulation. The inlet Reynolds number is 11000. The rotation numbers vary from 0 to 0.09. Three outflow ratios are 27%/0%/73%, 27%/49%/24% and 27%/73%/0%, respectively. The rotation radius (R) is 46.4d. The result shows that the Nusselt number distribution of the passage 3 under 27%/49%/24% outflow ratio condition is similar to that under 27%/73%/0% outflow ratio condition. There is a large low Nusselt number area in the passage 3 under Dr = 27%/0%/73% condition. The averaged area Nusselt number ratios on the suction side of the passage 1, passage 2 and passage 3 are higher than that on the pressure side under nonrotating condition. Rotation enhances heat transfer on the suction side of the passage 2, and has a positive effect on pressure side heat transfer of passage 1 and passage 3. The averaged area Nusselt number ratio of passage 3 under 27%/73%/0% outflow ratio condition is higher than that under other outflow ratio conditions. With the rotation number increasing, the pressure coefficient of the complete ribbed serpentine channel gradually increases, and the maximum increase is in the first turning area.
