CFD simulations were performed to study the film cooling of a flat plate from one row of compound-angles holes fed by an internal-cooling passage that is perpendicular to the hot-gas flow. Parameters examined include direction of flow in the internal cooling passage and blowing ratios of 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 with the coolant-to-hot-gas density ratio kept at 1.5. This CFD study is based on steady RANS with the shear-stress transport (SST) and realizable k-ε turbulence models. To understand the effects of unsteadiness in the flow, one case was studied by using large-eddy simulation (LES). Results obtained showed an unsteady vortical structure forms inside the hole, causing a side-to-side shedding of the coolant jet. Values of adiabatic effectiveness predicted by CFD simulations were compared with the experimentally measured values. Steady RANS was found to be inconsistent in its ability to predict adiabatic effectiveness with relative error ranging for 10% to over 100%. LES was able to predict adiabatic effectiveness with reasonable accuracy.
