The present study is conducted to investigate the characteristics of the flow field and heat transfer in an impingement/effusion cooling scheme for gas turbine combustor liner. It is designed to provide an insight, through the study of the flow field, into the physical mechanisms responsible for the enhanced impingement heat transfer near the effusion hole entrance. In this impingement/effusion cooling scheme, the angle between the impingement hole and effusion hole and the wall surface are 90 deg and 30 deg respectively. The square arrays of impingement/effusion holes are used with equal numbers of holes offset half a pitch relative to each plate so that an impingement jet is located on the center of each four effusion holes and vice versa. The flow field of the double skin wall space is described by the way of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). Two kinds of target plates, with and without effusion holes, are used in the impingement heat transfer study. Through changing the impingement Reynolds and the impingement gap, the change of the impingement heat transfer coefficient on the target plates is investigated. The impingement heat transfer test results show that the impingement heat transfer is enhanced near the entrance of the effusion holes, which could fully explain the feature of the impingement heat transfer coefficient on the target plate.
