Parallel plate combustor wall cooling was investigated. The combustor air flowed down the gap between two flat surfaces in a low pressure loss configuration. The work was aimed at combustor liner external air cooling for regenerative combustor cooling prior to entering a lean low NOx combustor. The test rig was 152 mm square and the test section was a duct of 152mm width and height of 10 and 5mm with a 152mm length. The experimental investigation involved the measurement of the heat transfer coefficient using the lumped capacity method. together with overall wall cooling effectiveness measurements in a hot duct test rig. The compromise between increased pressure loss and enhanced heat transfer for obstacles in the duct was investigated. It was shown that at coolant flow rates comparable with combustor requirements, adequate wall cooling effectiveness could be achieved using this technique. The cooling effectiveness performance was compared with the alternative technique of impingement cooling using low impingement jet pressure loss.
