A numerical study is reported to investigate the liquid film cooling in a rocket combustion chamber. Mass, momentum and heat transfer characteristics through the interface are considered in detail. A marching procedure is employed for solution of the respective governing equations for the liquid film and gas stream together. The standard turbulence k-ε model is used to simulate the turbulence gas flow and a modified van Driest model is adopted to simulate the turbulent liquid film flow. Radiation of gas stream is also considered and simulated with the flux model. Downstream of the liquid film the gaseous film cooling is numerically studied simultaneously. Results are presented for a mixed gases-water system under different condition. Various effects on the liquid film length are examined in detail. There is a good agreement between the numerical prediction and experimental result on the liquid film length.
