This paper describes an investigation of the sensitivity of the heat transfer coefficient under the film to the state of the approach boundary layer for injection through a row of holes on a flat plate. The investigation is done for a range of blowing parameters using a heat-mass transfer analogy. Injection angles of 35 deg and 90 deg are covered. Additionally, for the same injection geometries, the effect of injection in the presence of mild adverse, mild favorable, and strong favorable mainstream pressure gradients is investigated. The results indicate that the heat transfer coefficient under the film is sensitive neither to the condition of the approach boundary layer nor to the presence of a mild adverse pressure gradient, but it is significantly lowered by a favorable pressure gradient, particularly at low blowing parameters.
