This paper presents the development of a novel experimental technique utilizing both temperature and pressure sensitive paints (TSP and PSP). Through the combination of these paints, both detailed heat transfer coefficient and film cooling effectiveness distributions can be obtained from two short experiments. Using a mass transfer analogy, PSP has proven to be a powerful technique for measurement of film cooling effectiveness. This benefit is exploited to obtain detailed film cooling effectiveness distributions from a steady state flow experiment. This measured film cooling effectiveness is combined with transient temperature distributions obtained from a transient TSP experiment to produce detailed heat transfer coefficient distributions. Optical filters are used to differentiate the light emission from the florescent molecules comprising the PSP and TSP. Although two separate tests are needed to obtain the heat transfer coefficient distributions, the two tests can be performed in succession to minimize setup time and variability. The detailed film effectiveness and heat transfer enhancement ratios have been obtained for a generic, inclined angle (θ = 35°) hole geometry on a flat plate. Distinctive flow features over a wide range of blowing ratios have been captured with the proposed technique. In addition, the measured results have compared favorably to previous studies (both qualitatively and quantitatively), thus substantiating the use of the combined PSP / TSP technique for experimental investigations of three temperature mixing problems.
