Greetings! You've found the homepage describing some aspects of our research on Gas Turbine Flow and Heat Transfer, an ongoing project at the University of Minnesota, Mechanical Engineering Department, Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer Division in the Turbulent Convective Heat Transfer laboratory.

The Principle Investigator for this research program is Richard J. Goldstein and these pages describe some recent work by his graduate students, Steve Olson and Haiping Wang.

We hope you'll take a few moments to look around our site. For the whole story, just follow the sequence of section headings to the upper left. Or, jump to whatever section interests you. Be sure not to miss the flow visualization section along the way. There, you'll find many photographs and diagrams describing the Flow and Heat Transfer in Gas Turbine Blade Passages.
