This study investigates the effects of sinusoidal pulsations externally imposed to an oblique round jet. The effectiveness of film coverage of an adiabatic wall onset for a thermally uniform bulk flow is presented in the perspective of gas turbine film cooling. For the injectant fluid, both the temperature and the mass flow rate are controlled prior to entrance to the periodic forcing system using a loudspeaker drive. The characteristic film cooling parameters including the blowing ratios and the temperature ratio are maintained at M=ρiUi/ρU= 0.65, 1, and 1.25, and Ti/T=2 respectively. The injection fluid is pulsated to a nondimensionalized frequency of St=fd/U= 0, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.5. In the present investigation, the impact of injectant film modulation is figured out by analyzing the velocity fields measured by a system of time-resolved particle image velocimetry (TR-PIV), as well as analyzing the adiabatic wall temperature and the convective heat transfer coefficient measured by a system of infrared thermography. The overall film-cooling effectiveness is revealed by the time-averaged analysis, in which altered time-averaged jet trajectories and wake behavior are focused. It is observed that the pulsations tend to result in lower effectiveness when the flow remained attached to the wall in steady blowing case. In steady blowing cases with jet liftoff, such as for M= 1.25, rendering low-frequency pulsation helps in increasing film-cooling effectiveness due to the discharge of lower mass flow rate coolant during the significant time interval of the respective pulse cycle.
