In the current study, a numerical analysis was performed for the heat transfer over the surface of nozzle guide vanes (NGVs) using three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models. The investigation has taken place in two stages: the baseline nonfilm-cooled NGV and the film-cooled NGV. A finite volume based commercial code was used to build and analyze the CFD models. The investigated annular cascade has no heat transfer measurements available; hence in order to validate the CFD models against experimental data, two standalone studies were carried out on the NASA C3X vanes, one on the nonfilm-cooled C3X vane and the other on the film-cooled C3X vane. Different modeling parameters were investigated including turbulence models in order to obtain good agreement with the C3X experimental data; the same parameters were used afterward to model the industrial NGVs.
