Detailed numerical investigations of film cooling effectiveness are conducted for the holes on the tip cavity floor and near the tip pressure side. The tested blade tip is a squealer with the trailing rim wall cut to allow the accumulated coolant in the cavity to escape and cool the trailing edge. The heat transfer coefficients on the un-cooled flat and cutback squealer blade tip are studied with numerical and experimental methods. Three dust purging holes with different diameters are arranged along the camber line, which forms the basic cooled case (PG case). Additional six tip cavity holes are arranged on cavity floor near the suction side rim (PG-TF case). Another row of angled twenty-one holes is arranged along the pressure side just below the tip based on the PG case (PG-PSF case). The coolant supply pressure ratios are controlled to be 1, 1.11, and 1.22 respectively, offering local blowing ratio from 0 to 2.5. Results show that the dust purging flow cooling performance increases with the cavity depth. Discrete holes on the cavity floor offer a well-distributed coolant, which refines the cooling effect on the cavity floor. The PG-PSF case with cooling holes on the pressure side has the best overall cooling performance with more coolant consumed, when PR ≥ 1.22. However, maintaining the same coolant mass flow the PG-TF case has the best cooling performance, and the margin between PG-TF and PG-PSF case decreases with mass flow. The moving shroud cases reveal that blade movement will cause significant negative impacts on film cooling effectiveness.
