The effectiveness and the heat transfer have been measured in a system involving the tangential injection of air from a single spanwise slot into the turbulent boundary layer of an external air stream, with the velocity of the external stream increasing in a way that concentrated the acceleration in a region downstream of the initial mixing zone. The effectiveness was changed but little from the value that would have existed had the free-stream velocity remained at its initial value and both temperature profiles and analytical considerations show that this invariability of the effectiveness is associated with thermal boundary-layer thicknesses that are much larger than the hydrodynamic thicknesses. Heat-transfer coefficients are shown to be predictable from existing information provided that the momentum thickness Reynolds number is large enough.
