This paper deals with an experimental investigation of heat transfer across the suction side of a high-pressure, film-cooled gas turbine blade and with an attempt to numerically predict this quantity both with and without film cooling. The measurements were performed in the VKI isentropic compression tube facility under well-simulated gas turbine conditions. Data measured in a stationary frame, with and without film cooling, are presented. The predictions of convective heat transfer, including streamwise curvature effects, are compared with the measurements. A new approach to determine the augmented mixing lengths near the ejection holes on a highly convex wall is discussed and numerical results agree well with experimentally determined heat transfer coefficients in the presence of film cooling.
