In the present paper, the influence of the presence of an inlet flow non uniformity on the aerodynamic and thermal performance of a film cooled linear nozzle vane cascade is fully assessed. Tests have been carried out with platform cooling, with coolant ejected through a slot located upstream of the leading edge. Cooling air is also ejected through a row of cylindrical holes located upstream of the slot, simulating a combustor cooling system. An obstruction was installed upstream of the cascade at variable tangential and axial position to generate a flow non uniformity. The cascade was tested at a high inlet turbulence intensity level (Tu1 = 9%) and at a constant inlet Mach number of 0.12 and nominal cooling condition. Aero-thermal characterization of vane platform was obtained through 5-hole probe and end wall adiabatic film cooling effectiveness measurements. Results show a relevant negative impact of inlet flow non uniformity on the cooled cascade aerodynamic and thermal performance. Higher film cooling effectiveness and lower aerodynamic losses are obtained when the inlet flow non uniformity is located at mid pitch, while lower effectiveness and higher losses are obtained when it is aligned to the vane leading edge. Moving the non uniformity axially or changing its blockage only marginally influences the platform thermal protection.

Abstract

In the present paper, the influence of the presence of an inlet flow non uniformity on the aerodynamic and thermal performance of a film cooled linear nozzle vane cascade is fully assessed. Tests have been carried out with platform cooling, with coolant ejected through a slot located upstream of the leading edge. Cooling air is also ejected through a row of cylindrical holes located upstream of the slot, simulating a combustor cooling system. An obstruction was installed upstream of the cascade at variable tangential and axial position to generate a flow non uniformity. The cascade was tested at a high inlet turbulence intensity level (Tu1 = 9%) and at a constant inlet Mach number of 0.12 and nominal cooling condition. Aero-thermal characterization of vane platform was obtained through 5-hole probe and end wall adiabatic film cooling effectiveness measurements. Results show a relevant negative impact of inlet flow non uniformity on the cooled cascade aerodynamic and thermal performance. Higher film cooling effectiveness and lower aerodynamic losses are obtained when the inlet flow non uniformity is located at mid pitch, while lower effectiveness and higher losses are obtained when it is aligned to the vane leading edge. Moving the non uniformity axially or changing its blockage only marginally influences the platform thermal protection.
