Film cooling technique is widely used to protect the components from being destroyed by hot mainstream in a modern gas turbine. Combining round-holes is a promising way of improving film cooling effectiveness. A batch simulation of 75 cases focusing on the arrangements of combined-hole unit with two holes for improving film cooling performance are carried out in this work, and the influence of an aerodynamic parameter, blowing ratio, is considered as well. The lateral distance and compound-angle of the two holes have relative influence on the film cooling performance of a combined-hole unit. At a small lateral distance, the film cooling effectiveness increases significantly as compound-angle increases, whereas it deteriorates at a large distance and it is barely influenced by compound-angle at a medium lateral distance. Asymmetrical compound-angle is introduced aiming to balance the two branches of vortexes, but its film cooling performance is not as good as expected. The general film cooling effectiveness is in the position between that of the adjacent symmetrical compound-angle. Besides, the optimal arrangement of combined-hole unit for improving film cooling performance is relative to local aerodynamic parameter. The combination of the lateral distance of the two holes with their compound-angles for the highest film cooling effectiveness is different at different blowing ratios.
