In this paper, the film-cooling effectiveness (?) and heat transfer coefficient (h) of different film hole geometries are investigated, including double-jet film cooling (DJFC) holes, streamwise cylindrical holes, and fan-shaped holes, both experimentally and numerically. Results reveal that when the blowing ratio is less than 1.0, the DJFC holes have the highest ? and the highest h, as well as the highest net heat flux reduction (NHFR). However, a higher blowing ratio (>1.0) leads to a quickly decreasing NHFR of DJFC holes. The asymmetric anti-kidney vortex and the high turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) are dominant in the performance of the DJFC holes. Owing to medium effectiveness and the lowest heat transfer coefficient, the fan-shaped holes possess the highest net heat flux reduction at M=2.0 although the value is negative. The relatively weak kidney vortex and the low TKE can explain the phenomena. The cylindrical holes have the lowest ? and the lowest NHFR due to the kidney vortex and relatively higher TKE.
