The aim of this study is to determine the discharge coefficient of a multiperforated wall sample designed by AVIO, and more precisely to show the influence of each surrounding flow (inside holes, coolant and main flows). Results obtained are compared to correlations from literature. As previously observed, it is found that the discharge coefficient is strongly dependent on the Reynolds number relative to the hole flow (Reh). The influence of the coolant flow has been proved. The comparison with classical correlations shows many differences: i) on the expected asymptotic value ii) on the rate of increase for the lowest values of Reh. This influence is not taken into account by classical correlations deduced from experiments carried out without crossflow. Based on our experiments, we determined a general expression of Cd. Experimental data are fitted with a function of type Cd = A(1−exp(−B.Reh)), where A and B are expressed as functions of the Reynolds number (Re2) of the coolant flow.
