In order to study the aerodynamics of a slot jet impinging a concave wall, flow visualisations, velocity measurements by PIV and pressure measurements are carried out. A statistical data processing allows us to obtain the mean velocity fields and the Reynolds stresses. Among the studied parameters, the effect of the relative curvature of the wall is studied in particular because of a jet beating phenomenon observed for a low relative curvature. Three flow modes are then described.
