Highlights•Application of IFM to vane/endwall junction yields ice-contoured endwalls.•Created contours reduce heat transfer compared to flat endwall.•Heat transfer reductions result from weakening of vortex system and secondary flows.•Heat transfer closely linked to entropy production rates due to heat conduction.
