A large-scale model of an inclined row of film cooling holes is used to obtain detailed surface and flow field measurements that will enable future computational fluid dynamics code development and validation. The model consists of three holes of 1.9-cm diameter that are spaced three hole diameters apart and inclined 30 deg from the surface. The length to diameter ratio of the coolant holes is about 18. Measurements include film effectiveness using IR thermography and near wall thermocouples, heat transfer using liquid crystal thermography, flow field temperatures using a thermocouple, and velocity and turbulence quantities using hotwire anemometry. Results are obtained for blowing ratios of up to 2 in order to capture severe conditions in which the jet is lifted. For purposes of comparison with prior art, measurements of the velocity and turbulence field along the jet centerline are made and compare favorably with two data sets in the open literature thereby verifying the test apparatus and methodology are able to replicate existing data sets. In addition, a computational fluid dynamics model using a two-equation turbulence model is developed, and the results for velocity, turbulent kinetic energy and turbulent dissipation rate are compared with experimentally derived quantities.
