Complete distributions of local heat transfer coefficient have been measured over the full surface of a pedestal bank at a number of Reynolds numbers. The transient heat transfer method with thermochromic liquid crystals used as the surface thermometer was used to obtain the data. The pedestal geometry included fillet radii representative of those used in engine blade cooling passages. The heat transfer coefficient distributions are compared to previously reported local measurements made on a bank of plain cylinders. Averaged values based on the local mixed bulk gas temperature are compared to established correlations. The distributions of local heat transfer coefficient show a remarkable periodicity when based on a local temperature. These patterns are discussed in terms of the interpreted flow field. Measurements of pressure drop are also reported and, for a range of engine representative Reynolds numbers, agree with an existing correlation for prismatic pedestals.
