Cast interconnecting passage Lattice cooling geometries offer the gas turbine designer higher structural integrity and improved convective efficiency when compared to traditional aerofoil rear cooling strategies. In this paper, local heat transfer coefficient distributions were measured in a model of an idealised engine lattice cooling geometry, with flow ejection through film-cooling holes. The measurements were made using the transient liquid crystal technique in a large-scale perspex model at low temperature. The technique allows very high data resolution. Heat transfer patterns on all surfaces of the device including the internal web are presented at engine representative Reynolds numbers. The results are discussed in terms of the interpreted flow field. Furthermore, a subsequent analysis which accounted for the changing driving gas temperature and mass flow rate through the model has allowed the heat transfer coefficients to be derived based on the mixed bulk temperature, and local passage Reynolds number.
