Assuming the local adiabatic wall temperature equals the local total temperature in a low speed coolant mixing layer, integral conservation equations with and without the boundary layer effects are formulated for the mixing layer downstream of a single coolant injection hole oriented at a 30 degree angle to the crossflow. These equations are solved numerically to determine the center-line local adiabatic wall temperature and the effective coolant coverage area. Comparison of the numerical results with an existing film cooling experiment indicates that the present analysis permits a simplified but reasonably accurate prediction of the centerline effectiveness and coolant coverage area downstream of a single hole crossflow stream wise injection at 30-deg inclination angle.
