The effects of obstructions on film cooling performance on a scaled-up 1st stage turbine vane will be discussed. Experimental results show that obstructions located upstream or inside of a film cooling hole will degrade adiabatic effectiveness up to 80% of the levels found with no obstructions. Downstream obstructions had little effect on performance. The location where the upstream obstructions ceased to degrade adiabatic effectiveness was determined and temperature profiles were constructed to determine how the upstream obstructions were affecting the mainstream and coolant flow.
