Film cooling adiabatic effectiveness and heat transfer coefficients for cylindrical holes embedded in a 1d transverse trench on the suction side of a simulated turbine vane were investigated to determine the net heat flux reduction. For reference, measurements were also conducted with standard inclined, cylindrical holes. Heat transfer coefficients were determined with and without upstream heating to isolate the hydrodynamic effects of the trench and to investigate the effects of the thermal approach boundary layer. Also the effects of a tripped versus an un-tripped boundary layer were explored. For both the cylindrical holes and the trench, heat transfer augmentation was much greater with no tripping of the approach flow. A further increase in heat transfer augmentation was caused by use of upstream heating, with as much as a 150% augmentation with the trench. With a tripped approach flow the heat transfer augmentation was much less. The net heat flux reduction for the trench was found to be significantly higher than for the row of cylindrical holes.
