This paper presents the first experimental and numerical work of film effectiveness performance for a novel film cooling method with an arrowhead-shaped hole geometry. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed hole geometry improves the film effectiveness on both suction and pressure surface of a generic turbine airfoil. Film effectiveness data for a row of the holes are compared with that of fan-shaped holes at the same inclination angle of 35° to the surface on a large-scale airfoil model at engine representative Reynolds number and Mach number in a high speed tunnel with moderately elevated temperature mainstream flow. The film effectiveness data are collected using pressure sensitive paint (PSP). Numerical results show that the coolant film with the proposed hole geometry remains well attached to the surface and diffuses in the lateral direction in comparison with the conventional laidback fan-shaped holes for coolant to mainstream blowing ratios of 0.6 to 3.5.
