This paper presents computational predictions of adiabatic film cooling effectiveness for effusion cooling systems with 90° and 30° holes. Predictions are performed for a range of coolant injection mass flow rates per unit surface area, G, of 0.1kg/sm2 - 1.6 kg/sm2 for 90° holes with constant pitch-to-diameter ratio of X/D = 11 and 10 rows of holes and for 30° inclined holes with X/D = 11 and 15 rows of holes over a 152mm surface length. The computational works performed are steady-state and the turbulent governing equations are solved by a control-volume-based finite difference method with second-order upwind scheme and the k-epsilon turbulence model. The velocity and pressure terms of momentum equations are solved by the SIMPLE method. The CFD prediction were validated by comparing the predictions with literature data for single rows of inclined holes and then applied to effusion cooling. The predictions included the use of a tracer gas in the coolant, which was used to predict the mixing of the coolant with the hot mainstream gases. Also the surface distribution of the tracer gas was a direct prediction of the cooling effectiveness. The mixing of coolant with the mainstream was studied and boundary layer temperature and coolant mixing profiles were predicted. These were compared with temperature measurement in a hot effusion cooling test rig.
