In the present work, computational simulations was made using ANSYS CFX to predict the improvements in film cooling performance with multi trench. Multi-trench configuration consists of two trenches together, one wider trench and the other is narrow trench that extruded from the wider one. Several blowing ratios in the range (0.5:5) were investigated. By using the multi trench configuration, the coolant jet impacted the trench wall two times allowing increasing the spreading of coolant laterally in the trench, reducing jet velocity and jet completely covered on the surface. The results indicate that this configuration increased adiabatic effectiveness as blowing ratio increased. No observed film blow-off at all blowing ratios. The adiabatic film effectiveness of multi trench case outperformed the narrow trench case, laidback fan-shaped hole, fan-shaped hole and cylinder hole at different blowing ratios. An additional benefit is the low flow rate will provide the same cooling effect by using multi trench configuration.
