A finite element method based investigation is carried out for the determination of three‐dimensional turbulent flow structures and heat transfer rates of cooling ducts within turbine blades which rotate about an axis orthogonal to their own axis of symmetry. The effects of geometrical configurations, Coriolis forces and coolant inertias on the hydrodynamic and thermal characteristics have been systematically predicted and compared with experimental measurements.
