A correlation is developed to predict film cooling effectiveness for turbine vanes. Heat transfer data from a number of different sources is examined to determine if the correlation satisfactorily predicts film cooled vane heat transfer data. Predictions are made for a range of variables encountered in these data. The primary purpose of this work is to demonstrate how well film cooling correlations, developed from large scale experiments, can be utilized to predict turbine blade heat transfer. The correlation that is developed accounts for blowing ratio, Reynolds number, turbulence intensity, and surface curvature. A second purpose of this work is to illustrate the importance of comparing predictions with data at a sufficiently high Reynolds number to be applicable to first stage turbine vanes of future engines with their increased overall pressure ratios.
