An experimental research program was undertaken to examine the influence of large-scale high-intensity turbulence on vane heat transfer. The experiment was conducted in a four-vane linear cascade at exit Reynolds numbers of 500,000 and 800,000 based on chord length. Heat transfer measurements were made for four inlet turbulence conditions including a low turbulence case (Tu ≅ 1 percent), a grid turbulence case (Tu ≅ 7.5 percent), and two levels of large-scale turbulence generated with a mock combustor at two upstream locations (Tu ≅ 12 percent and 8 percent). The heat transfer data demonstrated that the length scale, Lu, has a significant effect on stagnation region and pressure surface heat transfer.
