Abstract

Radial and circumferential variations of cavity air temperature are presented for a rotating cavity with an axial throughflow of cooling air. Results show that the air temperatures are influenced significantly by the cavity surface temperature distribution. Strong (around 5°C) circumferential air temperature variations are observed showing the flow to be three-dimensional. Temperature time traces are used to infer flow structure features and also the variation of the fluid to cavity angular velocity ratio with temperature. Features and trends are found to be consistent with flow visualization evidence, Laser Doppler Anemometry data, and also computations of other workers.
