Film Cooling Using Antikidney Vortex Pairs: Effect of Blowing Conditions and Yaw Angle on Cooling and Losses
- Journal Article
A film-cooling configuration generating an antikidney vortex pair is studied. The configuration features cylindrical cooling holes inclined at an angle of α = 35 deg and arranged in two spanwise rows with row-wise alternating yaw angles ±β. Results of several largeeddy simulations are presented with varying blowing conditions and yaw angles. The effects on the achieved cooling and the generated losses are studied. The film-cooling Reynolds number (based on the fully turbulent hot boundary layer along a flat plate and the cooling hole diameter) is 6570 and the Mach number is 0.2. The density as well as mass-flux ratios (DR and M) range from 1 to 2 and the yaw angles from β = ±30 deg to ±60 deg. We identify scaling parameters and explain relevant mechanisms. Moreover, the flow field is subdivided into three regions featuring different physical mechanisms: the single-jet, the jet-interaction, and the diffusion region. A strong antikidney vortex pair occurs for high momentum ratios I. For the highest ratio, I=2.3, our configuration may provide even better effectiveness than cooling with particular fan-shaped holes. © 2014 by ASME. Show more
