Knuth, Eldon L (1954) The mechanics of film cooling. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-12032003-112656
Thin liquid wall films flowing under the influence of high-velocity turbulent gas streams were studied for the purpose of obtaining an understanding of the mechanics of film cooling. Conditions which insure liquid-film attachment to solid surfaces without loss of unevaporated liquid to the gas stream when simple radial-hole injectors are used were found; the maximum allowable coolant-flow rate for a stable coolant film was determined (a stable coolant film is obtained when no unevaporated coolant is entrained by the gas stream as the result of interfacial disturbances); and a method for calculating the evaporation rate and the surface temperature for a stable inert coolant film was found.
