Heat transfer in a leading edge, triangular-shaped cooling channel with three channel orientations under high rotation numbers is investigated in this study. Continuous ribs and V-shaped ribs (P/e = 9, e/Dh = 0.085), both placed at an angle (α = 45 deg) to the mainstream flow, are applied on the leading and trailing surfaces. The Reynolds number range is 15,000–25,000 and the rotation number range is 0–0.65. Effects of high rotation number on heat transfer with three angles of rotation (90 deg, 67.5 deg, and 45 deg) are tested. Results show that heat transfer is influenced by the combined effects of rib and channel orientation. When the rotation number is smaller than 0.4, rotation causes a decrease in the average Nusselt number ratios on the leading surface at a channel orientation of 90 deg. Heat transfer is enhanced gradually on the leading surface when the channel orientation varies from 90 deg to 45 deg for both ribbed cases. The highest heat transfer enhancement due to rotation is found at the highest rotation number of 0.65.
