In the second part of this two-part paper, several CHT (Conjugate Heat Transfer) CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations were conducted at low temperature and pressure conditions which a 100KW or a 400KW blower can provided, in order to investigate the reason caused the modeling deviation when the matched-Biot number criterion is used for modeling. The CFD method used in this paper is the same as the Part I. Afterwards, several experiments were carried out at a mainstream condition which the 100 KW blower can provide to validate whether the deviations predicted by CFD would appear at that target modeling conditions. The mainstream inlet temperature and pressure are 307 K and 113 kPa, respectively. The model used in this paper is the Mark II turbine as well.

The CFD and experiment results show that the main source of the modeling deviation comes from the suction side, the minimum deviation for the four modeling tests has over 0.05 (minimum wall temperature deviation has over 0.75 K). Apart from that, the reason leading to the suction side deviation is the variation of temperature boundary layer, which is caused by the unmatched aerodynamic parameters (such as mainstream Mach number and Reynolds number).
