Abstract

The effectiveness of the jet impingement system on the turbine blade pressure side has been experimentally investigated. The effects of height-to-diameter ratio and air velocity on the effectiveness of jet impingement were studied. Experiments was performed under varying height-to-diameter ratios (H/D = 5, 10, 15, 20) where the distance from the nozzle to the pressure side surface ranged from 20, 40, 60 and 80 mm with a constant nozzle diameter of 4 mm. The Nusselt number is calculated to determine the cooling effect of the pressure side model surface. Experiments were also performed at varying air velocity at 6.4 m/s and 12.6 m/s. The findings revealed that there was no direct relationship between Nusselt number and H/D ratio where the optimum cooling impact at a velocity of 6.4 m/s was found to be at H/D=15, whereas at a velocity of 12.6 m/s it was found to be at H/D=5. The findings also reveal that the amount of Nusselts rises as the air velocity increases.
