Abstract

A large-scale model of an inclined row of film cooling holes is used to obtain detailed surface and flow field measurements that will enable future computational fluid dynamics code development and validation. The model consists of three holes of 1.9-cm diameter that are spaced 3 hole diameters apart and inclined 30° from the surface. The length to diameter ratio of the coolant holes is about 18. Measurements include film effectiveness using IR thermography and near wall thermocouples, heat transfer using liquid crystal thermography, flow field temperatures using a thermocouple, and velocity and turbulence quantities using hotwire anemometry. Results are obtained for blowing ratios of up to 2 in order to capture severe conditions in which the jet is lifted. This first part of the two-part paper presents the detailed velocity component and turbulence stresses along the centerline of the film-cooling hole and at various streamwise locations.
