The suitability of a coupled scheme based on parabolic/elliptic Navier‐Stokes equations for calculating film cooling flows and heat transfer downstream of flush, angled injection slots is explored. The coupled algorithm that combined the coarse mesh ‘outer’ Navier‐Stokes and fine grid ‘inner’ parabolic Navier‐Stokes codes makes retention of the current high resolution model desirable because an acceptable accuracy and economy of computation time are attainable using only mini‐computer resources. The ‘inner‐code’ includes the FLARE approximation to permit small reverse flow. The inner and outer codes are coupled by adopting an approach analogous to classical multigrid methods. It is found that for high blowing mass flow rate of 1.0 with the case of greater than 40° injection angle, the fully parabolic procedure is unable to cope with an extensive separation region immediately downstream of the slot; the present coupling methodology is crucial. The study involves the calculation of heat transfer rates on the surface downstream of the angled slot. Predicted film cooling effectiveness distribution together with the effects of governing parameters are described and show close agreement with the experimental data.
