Experimental and numerical studies were conducted for the development of the integrated impingement and pin-fin cooling configuration. In the development, the spatial arrangements of impingement hole, pin-fin and film cooling (discharge) hole were the main concern. The temperature measurement was performed for different test pieces with various spatial arrangements to clarify the cooling effectiveness variation with the arrangement and the other cooling parameters. Experiments were conducted with 673K hot gas flow and room temperature cooling air. The Reynolds number of gas side flow was 380000 and cooling air Reynolds number was 5000–30000. Test plate surface temperatures were measured using an infrared camera. The cooling effectiveness obtained from the experiment for one specimen was different from that for a specimen that had the same pin density but a different spatial arrangement. So it was confirmed that an arrangement of hole and pin, as well as pin density, was an important parameter. CFD analysis was also conducted to make clear how spatial arrangement affected internal heat transfer characteristics. Pressure losses were also evaluated for each specimen, and total thermal performance was compared. A basic configuration with one pin at the center of a unit area showed the most superior total thermal performance.
