A transient heat transfer method using liquid crystals has been applied to a scale model of a turbine rotor blade passage. Detailed contours of local heat transfer coefficient are presented for the passage in which the heat transfer to one wall was enhanced first by ribs and then with ribs combined with holes. The hole geometry and experimental dimensionless flow rates were representative of those occurring at the entrance to engine film cooling holes. The results for the ribbed passage are compared to established correlations for developed flow. Qualitative surface shear stress distributions were determined with liquid crystals. The complex distributions of heat transfer coefficient are discussed in light of the interpreted flow field.
