An experimental study was conducted to quantify the flow characteristics of wall jets pertinent to trailing edge cooling of turbine blades. A high-resolution stereoscopic PIV system was used to conduct detailed flow field measurements to quantitatively visualize the evolution of the unsteady vortex and turbulent flow structures in cooling wall jet streams and to quantify the dynamic mixing process between the cooling wall jet streams and the main stream flows. The detailed flow field measurements are correlated with the adiabatic cooling effectiveness maps measured by using pressure sensitive paint (PSP) technique to elucidate underlying physics in order to improve cooling effectiveness to protect the critical portions of turbine blades from the harsh ambient conditions.
