Film cooling experiments have been conducted at conditions which realistically simulate the gas turbine environment. Heat transfer has been measured using a short duration wind tunnel. Mainstream injection and wall temperatures have been varied independently in order to conduct a systematic investigation of the injection process. A model of the film cooling process based on the principle of superposition is used to interpret the experimental results. The effect of gas to wall temperature ratio on heat transfer to an uncooled plate has also been investigated.
