Nozzle guide vane (NGV) platforms often use complex cooling schemes to mitigate the ever-increasing thermal loads on endwall. Understanding the effect of advanced cooling schemes amid the highly complex three-dimensional secondary flow is vital to engine efficiency and durability. This study analyzes, experimentally and numerically, and describes the effect of coolant to mainstream blowing ratio, momentum ratio, and density ratio (DR) for a typical axisymmetric converging nozzle guide vane platform with an upstream doublet staggered, steep-injection, cylindrical hole purge cooling scheme. Nominal flow conditions were engine-representative and as follows: Maexit = 0.85, Reexit,Cax = 1.5 × 106 and an inlet large-scale freestream turbulence intensity of 16%. Two blowing ratios were investigated, each corresponding to the design condition and its upper extrema at M = 2.5 and 3.5, respectively. For each blowing ratio, the coolant to mainstream density ratio was varied between DR = 1.2, representing typical experimental neglect of coolant density, and DR = 1.95, representative of typical engine conditions. The results show that with a fixed coolant-to-mainstream blowing ratio, the density ratio plays a vital role in the coolant-mainstream mixing and the interaction between coolant and horseshoe vortex (HSV) near the vane leading edge. A higher density ratio leads to a better coolant coverage immediately downstream of the cooling holes but exposes the in-passage endwall near the pressure side. It also causes the in-passage coolant coverage to decay at a higher rate in the flow direction. From the results gathered, both density ratio and blowing ratio should be considered for accurate testing, analysis, and prediction of purge jet cooling scheme performance.
