Heat transfer coefficients and film cooling effectiveness values were obtained numerically on a film cooled 2-D gas turbine blade tip model featuring a cutback squealer. In addition, pressure distributions were obtained at 50% and 98% spans. The calculations were performed for a single blade with periodic boundary conditions imposed along the two mid-passage boundaries formed by the adjacent blades. The calculations were performed with the realizable k-ε turbulence model and non-equilibrium wall function using 1.1 million elements. The numerical results are obtained for 4 blowing ratios and for Reynolds number based on axial chord and inlet velocity of 75,000. Limited experimental measurements of the blade pressure distributions and the uncooled tip heat transfer coefficients were performed for validation of the numerical results. The experiments were conducted in a six-blade low-speed wind tunnel cascade at a Reynolds number of 75,000. The heat transfer experiment involved a transient infrared thermography technique. Experimental heat transfer coefficients were extracted using a transient technique. The predicted pressure distributions agree very well with the measurements while the heat transfer coefficient predictions show qualitative agreement. From the numerical results, it can be seen that as the blowing ratio is increased, larger regions of film cooling effectiveness were seen with higher effectiveness values between the camber line and suction side. Heat transfer coefficients were largest near the leading edge for all cases.
