Embedding a row of typical cylindrical holes in a transverse slot can improve the cooling performance. Rectangular slots can increase the cooling effectiveness but is at the cost of decreasing of discharge coefficients. An experiment is conducted to examine the effects of an overlying transverse inclined trench on the film cooling performance of axial holes. Four different trench configurations are tested including the baseline inclined cylindrical holes. The influence of the geometry of the upstream lip of the exit trench and the geometry of the inlet trench on cooling performance is examined. Detailed film cooling effectiveness and heat transfer coefficients are obtained separately using the steady state IR thermography technique. The discharge coefficients are also acquired to evaluate the aerodynamic performance of different hole configurations. The results show that the film cooling holes with both ends embedded in slots can provide higher film cooling effectiveness and lower heat transfer coefficients; it also can provide higher discharge coefficients whilst retaining the mechanical strength of a row of discrete holes. The cooling performance and the aerodynamic performance of the holes with both ends embedded in inclined slots are superior to the holes with only exit trenched. To a certain extent, the configuration of the upstream lip of the exit trench affects the cooling performance of the downstream of the trench. The filleting for the film hole inlet avail the improvement of the cooling effect, but not for the film hole outlet. Comparing film cooling with embedded holes to unembedded holes, the overall heat flux ratio shows that the film holes with both ends embedded in slots and filleting for the film hole inlet can produce the highest heat flux reduction.
