Film-cooling has been widely used as the important alternative to protect the turbine blade. Since the film-cooling hole geometry is one of the most influential parameters for film-cooling performance, various film-cooling hole schemes have been developed to increase cooling performance for the past few decades. In the present work, numerical analysis has been performed to investigate and to compare the film-cooling performance of various film-cooling hole schemes such as fan-shaped, crescent, louver, and dumbbell holes. For analyzes of the turbulent flow and film-cooling, three-dimensional Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes analysis has been performed with shear stress transport turbulence model. The validation of numerical results has been performed in comparison with experimental data. The flow characteristics and film-cooling performance for each hole shape have been investigated and evaluated in terms of local- and averaged film-cooling effectivenesses.
