Turbine vane surface temperatures were measured in a linear cascade using an infrared non-contact thermal detector. A thermal barrier coating (TBC) was applied to the vane surface to give a rough surface. The temperature drop across the relatively thick TBC was used to determine heat transfer coefficients. Tests were conducted over a range of Reynolds and Mach numbers, resulting in large variations in hydraulic roughness. The measured heat transfer rates were significantly higher than were expected for a smooth vane. The detector was mounted in a probe holder, and traversed in a manner similar to that used for pneumatic or hot wire probes. The results showed that this approach gave useful information, and should be considered when non-contact surface temperatures are desired.
