Large Eddy Simulations (LES) of cylindrical, laterally diffused, and console holes are performed, and the resulting flow field data is presented. The motivation for performing LES is to enable more accurate simulations and to obtain a better understanding of the flow physics associated with complex hole shapes. The simulations include the coolant delivery tube and the feeding plenum chamber, and are performed for a specific mass flow rate of coolant per unit width of blade. A crossflow inlet is used on the plenum, and the resulting asymmetric flow characteristics are investigated. Coolant delivery tube flow fields are investigated in detail. Results show qualitative agreement with reported trends of improved film coverage with diffused and console holes.
