Abstract [en]

The vane block (VB) has been investigated and it gives several important results related to test methods and calculation procedures. The vane block is characterized by a developed film and convective cooling system. Blowing tests demonstrate that there is a weak correlation between cooling type and energy loss. Superposition of these effects is true for the central part over VB height without secondary flows. Coolant discharge increases profile loss and it rises if coolant flow rate is increased. Discharge onto profile convex side through the trailing edge slot influences the most considerably. The discharge through perforation decreases the vane flow capacity and insufficiently influences onto the flow outlet angle, but the trailing edge discharge increases this angle according to loss and mixture flow rate growth. The secondary flows reduce the effect of coolant discharge, which insufficiently changes losses distribution at turbine blades tips and even decreases the secondary losses. The flow outlet angle rises significantly and we are able to calculate it only if we correct the ordinary flow model. In the area of secondary flows, the outlet angle varies insufficiently under any type of cooling. This area should be investigated additionally.
