This paper describes the steps undertaken to measure heat flux in a turbine tested in a blowdown windtunnel when using a two-layered thin film gauge array. The sensor consists of a nickel thermoresistor deposited onto a flexible polyamide sheet that can be easily bounded on a substrate using double sided adhesive. The assembly constitutes a two-layered system. First, a numerical algorithm is proposed to extract the wall heat flux from the surface temperature history measured by the thin film gauge. It is very flexible and handles multilayered systems. Then, an original procedure is proposed to determine the thermal properties and the thickness of the different layers. It uses the above numerical algorithm coupled with a minimization routine. The repeatability of the procedure is assessed. Finally, tests are processed according to the proposed method. The results are successfully compared with measurements performed with single-layered thin film gauges.
