It is shown here by dimensional analysis that the near-wall flow field of an effusion cooled combustor, can be scaled if the Reynolds, Mach and Prandtl numbers and the temperature and velocity ratios are kept constant. It is also demonstrated that a practical model experiment can be designed, which fulfils all the scaling laws. A test rig meeting these requirements has been designed, built and tested. The experimental conditions have been chosen to correspond to the conditions usually met in a real effusion cooled combustion chamber.

One geometrical configuration has been investigated. This consists of one transverse row of holes drilled with a 30° angle to the wall through which the cooling air enters into a cross flowing mainstream. The mean values of all three velocity components and the three normal fluctuating Reynolds stresses as well as the mean temperature have been measured in a large number of points surrounding the central injection hole.

Experiments were carried out for jet-to mainstream density ratios of 1.2 and 1.8 and the results indicate that realistic density ratios are necessary to provide data directly applicable in effusion cooling design.
