Over the last decades, researchers have investigated many aspects of film cooling. The present study investigates the impact of stagnation region created by a downstream airfoil on endwall film cooling effectiveness. Experimental measurements are presented for a single row of cylindrical holes inclined at 35° with hole length to diameter ratio, L/D = 7.5, pitch to diameter ratio, PI/D = 3 with a constant density ratio of 1.26 and with nitrogen as the coolant. Five different configurations were studied. Configuration 0 is the baseline, this configuration consist of a single row of cylindrical holes. Configuration I-III consisted of an airfoil positioned downstream of the injection point at x/D = 6.4, 12.7 and 25.4. The presence of wake is also investigated on configuration IV. This configuration in addition to the airfoil, also has a wake plate at x/D = −12.7, upstream of the injection location. The experimental data shows that slightly higher averaged effectiveness values are observed for configuration I for low blowing ratios. Configuration III average effectiveness is higher for mid and high blowing ratios. For all configurations, the average effectiveness increase with increasing blowing ratio at a x/D further downstream of the injection point where the jet has reattached. Higher blowing ratio increase lateral spreading of the jet promoting jet to jet interaction and mainstream interaction enhancing mixing.
