This paper describes the steps undertaken to measure heat flux in a turbine tested in a blowdown windtunnel when using a two-layered thin film gauge array. The sensor consists of a nickel thermo resistor deposited onto a flexible polymide sheet that can be easily bounded on a substrate using double sided adhesive. The assembly constitutes a two-layered system. First, a numerical algorithm is proposed to extract the wall heat flux from the surface temperature history measured by the thin film gauge. It is very flexible and handles multi-layered systems. Then, an original procedure is proposed to determine the thermal properties and the thickness of the different layers. It uses the above numerical algorithm coupled with a minimization routine. The repeatability of the procedure is assessed. Finally, tests are processed according to the proposed method. The results are successfully compared with measurements performed with single-layered thin film gauges.
