This study investigated a practical but never exploited issue concerning the influence of flow leakage through a gap downstream on the film cooling performance with a row of discrete-hole injection. A heat transfer system as such can be categorized as either a three-temperature or a four-temperature problem, depending on the direction of leakage through the gap. To fully characterize a three-temperature based film-cooling system requires knowledge of both local film effectiveness and heat transfer coefficient. A second film effectiveness is necessary for characterizing a four-temperature problem. All these variables can be experimentally determined, based on the transient method of thermochromic liquid crystal imaging. Although the overall convective transport in the region is expected to be dependent on the blowing ratios of the coolants, the mass flow ratio of the two injectants, and the geometry, the current results indicated that the extent of flow injection or extraction through the gap has significant effects on the film effectiveness and less on the heat transfer coefficient which is primarily dominated by the geometric disturbance of gap presence.
