Abstract

An experimental investigation has been performed to measure the cooling performance of the louver scheme using a two-dimensional cascade simulating the scaled vane of a high-pressure gas turbine. Two rows of an axially oriented louver scheme are distributed in a stagger arrangement over the pressure side. The effect of hole location on the cooling performance is investigated for each row individually, then the row interaction is investigated for both rows. The temperature distribution on the vane is mapped using a transient Thermochromic Liquid Crystal (TLC) technique to obtain the local distributions of the heat transfer coefficient and film cooling effectiveness. The performance of the louver scheme for each case is compared with that of two similar rows with a standard cylindrical exit at 0.9 density ratio. The exit Reynolds number based on the true chord is 1.5E5 and exit Mach number is 0.23. The local distributions of the effectiveness and the heat transfer coefficient are presented at four different blowing ratios ranging from 1 to 2. The louver scheme shows a superior cooling effectiveness than that of the cylindrical holes at all blowing ratios in terms of protection and lateral coverage. The row location highly affects the cooling performance for both the louver and cylindrical scheme due to the local pressure change and the variation of the surface curvature.
