The cooling performance of a micro-holed endwall of a large-scale high pressure turbine cascade has been investigated within the European Project AITEB-2. The experimental investigation has been performed for a baseline configuration, with a smooth solid endwall and with a micro-holed endwall providing micro-jets ejection from the wall. A micro-holed endwall made of two modules was adopted in order to reduce the compound angle between the main flow and the micro jets axes. The micro-holed endwall is provided with a total amount of 3294 micro-holes with a diameter of 0.1 per cent of the blade chord. Four different cooling flow rates, from 1.2% to 2.6% of the main flow mass flow rate respectively, were investigated and the experimental results are reported in the paper. Both adiabatic effectiveness and heat transfer coefficient have been measured employing a steady state technique with Thermo-chromic Liquid Crystals (TLC). A thin stainless steel heating foil was used to generate the surface heat flux for the HTC measurements and a data reduction procedure based on a Finite Element approach has been developed to take into account the non uniform heat generation along the endwall.
