Evaluation of a Machine Learning Turbulence Model in a Square Transverse Jet in Crossflow

Cleverson BringhentiJesuíno Takachi Tomita


Film cooling is an important technique to ensure safe operation and performance fulfillment of turbines. Its ultimate goal is to protect the axial turbine blades from high gas temperatures. An appropriate study is necessary in order to obtain a reliable representation of the flow characteristics involved in such phenomena. Because of the high computational cost of high-fidelity simulations, the low-fidelity simulation method Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) is commonly used in practical configurations. However, the majority of the current turbulent heat flux models fail to accurately predict heat transfer in film cooling flows. Recent work suggests the use of machine learning models to improve turbulent closure in these flows. In the present work, a machine learning model for spatially varying turbulent Prandtl number previously described in the literature is applied to a transverse film cooling flow consisting of a jet square channel. The results obtained in the present work were compared to adiabatic effectiveness experimental data available in the literature to assess the performance of the machine learning model. The results shown that for low blowing ratios (BR = 0.2 and BR = 0.4) the proposed machine learning model ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
