Jaafar, Abdul Aziz and Abu Talib, Abd Rahim and Abdul Rahim, I. and Filipski, Mohammad Nizam and Salit, Mohd Sapuan (2006) Development of a testing facility for modelling cooling technique. In: Seminar on Engineering and Technology (SET2006), 4-5 Sept. 2006, Putrajaya, Malaysia. (pp. 108-116).


Development of a low speed testing facility, adopting blow tunnel configurations and specialised working section arrangements for general purposes flow and heat transfer investigations, is described. This article reports a preliminary design of the testing facility within the constraint of fabrication cost and space availability for investigation of a film cooling technique. The cooling technique is modelled as a tangential jet flow in a sudden expansion channel and the dimensional analysis was adopted for formulating possible functional relationships between testing parameters and cooling performances. Although slight improvements have been made to the range of testing conditions, modifications of the previous testing facility show an encouraging result in the flow properties entering the working section.
