Unstructured mesh adaptation is a promising approach to enable high numerical precision on complex turbomachinery geometries. The objective is to minimize the discretization error without using empirical meshing guidelines. In this work, we demonstrate the abilities of feature-based isotropic and anisotropic mesh adaptation for Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulation on a complex flow phenomenon of importance for turbomachinery: heat transfer of a film cooled turbine blade.
