A special naphthalene sublimation technique is used to study the film cooling performance downstream of one row of holes of 35° inclination angle and 45° compound angle with 3 diameter hole spacing and relatively small hole length to diameter ratio (6.3). Both film cooling effectiveness and mass/heat transfer coefficients are determined for blowing rates from 0.5 to 2.0 with density ratio of unity. The mass transfer coefficient is measured using pure air film injection, while the film cooling effectiveness is derived from comparison of mass transfer coefficients obtained following injection of naphthalene-vapor-saturated air with that of pure air injection. This technique enables one to obtain detailed local information on film cooling performance. General agreement is found in local film cooling effectiveness when compared with previous experiments. The laterally-averaged effectiveness with compound angle injection is higher than that with inclined holes immediately downstream of injection at a blowing rate of 0.5 and is higher at all locations downstream of injection at larger blowing rates. A large variation of mass transfer coefficients in the lateral direction is observed in the present study. At low blowing rates of 0.5 and 1.0, the laterally-averaged mass transfer coefficient is close to that of injection without compound angle. At the highest blowing rate used (2.0), the asymmetrical vortex motion under the jets increases the mass transfer coefficient drastically ten diameters downstream of injection.
