Analytical determination of local surface heat-transfer coefficients for cooled turbine blades from measured metal temperatures

Brown, W Byron Esgar, Jack B
August 11, 1950

Analytical methods are presented for the determination of local values of outside and inside heat-transfer coefficients and effective gas temperatures by use of turbine-blade-temperature measurements. The methods are derived for a number of configurations that can be applied to typical cooled-turbine-blade shapes as well as to other types of heat-transfer apparatus.
