Transpiration cooling using porous triple-laminated plates was numerically investigated to understand the associated flow mechanism and heat transfer characteristics with/without crossflow. The flow structure and heat transfer behavior are very similar in the two laminate gaps, and crossflow has little influence on them. The cooling performance shows very good uniformity and high efficiency. Violent impingement and turbulent flow inside the plate contribute greatly to local heat transfer intensification. The cooling efficiency might be further improved with enhancement of film cooling effect, by enlarging the discharge holes to decrease the local jet-to-crossflow velocity ratio, or by using inclined discharge holes to increase the film attaching ability.
