In this study, the effects of bleed flow on heat/mass transfer in a rotating smooth square channel were investigated. The hydraulic diameter of the channel was , and the diameter of the bleed holes on the leading surface was . Tests were conducted under various bleed flow rates (0%, 10%, 20%) and rotation numbers (0, 0.2, 0.4), while the Reynolds number was fixed at 10,000. A naphthalene sublimation method was employed to determine the detailed heat transfer coefficients using a heat and mass transfer analogy. The results suggested heat/mass transfer characteristics in the internal cooling passage to be influenced by tripping flow as well as Coriolis force induced by bleed flow and channel rotation. In cases influenced by bleed flow, the heat/mass transfer on the leading surface was higher than that without bleed flow. The heat/mass transfer on the leading surface increased with the number of rotations to , after which it decreased due to rotation effects.
