The cooling configuration adopted in this study integrates impingement cooling and pin fin cooling devices into one body, the aim being enhancement of the effective heat transfer area. The purpose of the study is to confirm improvement of cooling effectiveness for two different pin density configurations by experimental verification. Experiments were conducted in similar conditions to actual engines using large-scaled flat-plate specimens manufactured by a new rapid prototype casting technique. The results were compared with predictions by one-dimensional analysis adopting the fin efficiency theory. Although the coarse pin density, one pin in a unit area, shows good agreement with the prediction, the fine pin density, four pins in the unit area, was overpredicted. It was found by numerical analysis that heat transfer of the new pin geometry did not increase, so that its surface area increased. CFD-aided prediction was proposed and validated with two specimen’s data.
