As part of an industrial gas turbine research program, the present study provides the results of a basic investigation of the heat transfer in an impingement cooled combustor heat shield. Because of the complexity and the irregularity of the impingement pattern of the heat shield, standard correlations for regular impingement fields are insufficient and the investigation of local heat transfer enhancement is required therefore. The model to represent a simplified heat shield is made out of perspex, and heat transfer experiments are performed using a transient liquid crystal method. The local air temperature is measured at several positions within the model. The distributions of the Nusselt number on the impingement target plate as well as on the side rims and along the central bolt recess of the heat shield are shown for different impingement Reynolds numbers. The results are compared with respect to the local and overall heat transfer.
