The present work is concerned with experimental investigation of the convective heat transfer in a radially rotating four-pass serpentine channel. Two types of staggered half-V rib turbulators are considered to examine their effects on heat transfer enhancement. The coolant air is pressurized and pre-cooled to compensate for the low rotating rate and low temperature or density difference in key parameters of thermal and flow characteristics. The geometric dimensions are fixed, whereas the ranges of the thermal and flow parameters in the present measurements are and The present results disclose the effects of the pressurized flow, rib arrangement, channel rotation, and centrifugal buoyancy on the local heat transfer in each passage of the channel. Finally, the present data are fitted on correlation equations for evaluation of local heat transfer in the rotating four-pass ribbed channel configurations considered.
