Effects of Blowing Ratio on Multiple Shallow Angle Film Cooling Holes
This paper presents the investigation on the effects of the blowing ratio of multiple shallow angle film cooling holes. Multiple film cooling holes having a shallow hole angle (θ = 20°), arranged to perform in-line hole configuration has been considered in the present study. The investigation focuses on the effects of high blowing ratio of the film cooling effectiveness which have been carried out at ReD = 3100 and BR = 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0. The experiments make use of the IR camera in capturing the surface temperature to determine the film cooling effectiveness. The contours of the film cooling effectiveness distribution together with plots on laterally average film cooling effectiveness along the x/D are presented. The discussions have been made with a support of the temperature field captured at x/D = 3, 13, 23, and 33. The results clearly show the benefit of the employment of shallow hole angle (θ = 20°) at high blowing ratio which is much more superior in comparison to the common hole configuration (θ = 35°).
