This paper presents detailed isothermal investigations on the aerodynamic effects and the heat transfer of suction side film cooling on a highly loaded turbine cascade. The measurements were carried out with inlet flow conditions kept constant at values which are typically found in modern gas turbines. Five configurations with different hole geometries were investigated, a cylindrical hole with two different streamwise inclination angles, a fan shaped hole and a fan shaped hole with laid-back both only inclined in streamwise direction and a fan shaped hole with laid-back and combined streamwise and lateral inclination. The variation of the blowing ratio enabled closer studies of the mixing process and the influence of the various hole configurations on the aerodynamics and the local heat transfer.

To enhance the understanding of the mechanisms and the boundary layer behaviour of these highly three-dimensional flows, much effort has been put on the measurement techniques. The high-resolution data needed was obtained using pressure tappings positioned on the profile, oil-and-dye visualizations on the suction surface, pneumatic probes in the wake and three-dimensional hot wire anemometry in the flow field downstream the holes. Additional heat transfer examinations with a special set-up based on the steady state liquid crystal technique clarified the individual local heat transfer distributions.

All measured data are summarized and documented to be used as a reference for three-dimensional, steady-state numerical calculations.
