This paper presents experimental investigations for the measurement of the adiabatic film cooling effectiveness as well as the heat transfer coefficient distribution in film cooling experiments with a row of fanshaped holes on a flat plate. The temperature distribution on the flat plate is measured using infrared-thermography (IR). Adiabatic wall effectiveness data are obtained using a high-temperature plastic material. Although a low thermal conductivity material is used, the measured temperature distribution is not identical with the adiabatic temperature distribution. The measured temperature field shows influences of 3D heat conduction inside the test plate. The effects of the heat conduction inside the test plate are modeled using the FE-method to re-evaluate the adiabatic wall temperature and to calculate the coolant gas exit temperature, which is used for the adiabatic film cooling effectiveness. For the measurement of the heat transfer coefficient ratio with and without film cooling (hf /h0 ) a transient method is used. Temperature transients on the test surface are initiated by switching the coolant flow and are recorded using IR-thermography. The measured wall temperature histories are converted into heat flux values assuming a semi-infinite wall model during the experiment.
