Steady-state liquid crystal experimental method was used for measuring the film cooling effectiveness ([eta]) which is related to the adiabatic wall temperature ([T.sub.aw]) through the relation
To obtain the adiabatic wall temperature ([T.sub.aw]), a guard heater was attached to the bottom side of the endwall plate.
It should be also pointed out that a fitted value to measured adiabatic wall temperature for a typical case does not change the computed value of heat transfer coefficients.
