Experimental results are presented for a double wall cooling arrangement which simulates a portion of a combustor liner of a gas turbine engine. The results are collected using a new experimental facility designed to test full-coverage film cooling and impingement cooling effectiveness using either cross flow, impingement, or a combination of both to supply the film cooling flow. The present experiment primarily deals with cross flow supplied full-coverage film cooling for a sparse film cooling hole array that has not been previously tested. Data are provided for turbulent film cooling, contraction ratio of 1, blowing ratios ranging from 2.7 to 7.5, coolant Reynolds numbers based on film cooling hole diameter of about 5000–20,000, and mainstream temperature step during transient tests of 14 °C. The film cooling hole array consists of a film cooling hole diameter of 6.4 mm with nondimensional streamwise (X/de) and spanwise (Y/de) film cooling hole spacing of 15 and 4, respectively. The film cooling holes are streamwise inclined at an angle of 25 deg with respect to the test plate surface and have adjacent streamwise rows staggered with respect to each other. Data illustrating the effects of blowing ratio on adiabatic film cooling effectiveness and heat transfer coefficient are presented. For the arrangement and conditions considered, heat transfer coefficients generally increase with streamwise development and increase with increasing blowing ratio. The adiabatic film cooling effectiveness is determined from measurements of adiabatic wall temperature, coolant stagnation temperature, and mainstream recovery temperature. The adiabatic wall temperature and the adiabatic film cooling effectiveness generally decrease and increase, respectively, with streamwise position, and generally decrease and increase, respectively, as blowing ratio becomes larger.
