Stagnation region heat transfer measurements have been acquired on two large cylindrical leading edge test surfaces having a four to one range in leading edge diameter. Heat transfer measurements have been acquired for six turbulence conditions including three grid conditions, two aero-combustor conditions, and a low turbulence condition. The data have been run over an eight to one range in Reynolds numbers for each test surface with Reynolds numbers ranging from 62,500 to 500,000 for the large leading edge and 15,625 to 125,000 for the smaller leading edge. The data show augmentation levels of up to 110% in the stagnation region for the large leading edge. However, the heat transfer results for the large cylindrical leading edge do not appear to infer a significant level of turbulence intensification in the stagnation region. The smaller cylindrical leading edge shows more consistency with earlier stagnation region heat transfer results correlated on the TRL parameter. These results indicate that the intensification of approaching turbulence is more prevalent with the more rapid straining of the smaller leading edge. The downstream regions of both test surfaces continue to accelerate the flow but at a much lower rate than the leading edge. Bypass transition occurs in these regions providing a useful set of data to ground the prediction of transition onset and length over a wide range of Reynolds numbers and turbulence intensity and scales.
