This study investigates the combined effects of blowing ratio and density ratio on flat plate film cooling effectiveness from two-row of compound angled cylindrical holes. Two arrangements of two-row compound angled cylindrical holes are tested: the first row and second row are oriented in staggered but same compound angled direction (β = +45° for the first row, +45° for the second row); the first row and second row are oriented in inline but opposite direction (β = +45° for the first row, −45° for the second row). Each cooling hole is 4 mm in diameter with an inclined angle 30°. The streamwise distance between the two rows is fixed at 4d and the spanwise pitch between the two holes (p) is 4d, 6d, and 8d, respectively. The experiments are performed at four blowing ratios (M = 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) and three density ratios (DR = 1.0, 1.5, 2.0). The free stream turbulence intensity is kept at 6%. Detailed film cooling effectiveness distributions are obtained using the steady state pressure-sensitive paint (PSP) technique. The detailed film cooling effectiveness contours are presented and the spanwise averaged film effectiveness results are compared over the range of flow parameters. Film cooling effectiveness correlations are developed for both inline and staggered compound angled cylindrical holes. The results provide baseline information for the flat plate film cooling analysis with two-row of compound angled cylindrical holes.
