This paper presents the combined effects of high turbulence and film cooling on the dispersion of a simulated hot streak as it passes over a scaled-up nozzle guide vane. Experimental data demonstrates a considerable decay in the strength of a hot streak due to turbulence effects alone. Film cooling further reduces the peak temperature values resulting in a reduction of the peak temperature in the hot streak on the order of 75% relative to the upstream peak temperature in the hot streak. Comparisons are made between high turbulence (Tu = 20%) and moderate turbulence (Tu = 3.5%) as well as between different blowing conditions for the suction side, showerhead, and pressure side film cooling holes on a simulated nozzle guide vane.
