The aerodynamic behavior of cold discrete jets in a cold secondary flow is investigated. Configurations including single jets and rows of jets are studied. These jets are introduced through the side wall of a low-speed nozzle turbine cascade. The experimental setup and the jet behavior are fully described. The effects of location with respect to the blades, mass flow ratio, yaw, and incidence angles on the aerodynamics of single jets are investigated. The influence of neighboring jets is detailed in the case of multiple jet configurations. The interaction with the secondary flow is presented. The local pressure and velocity fields, trajectories, and visualizations are discussed. The measuring apparatus includes a five-hole probe and a hot wire for intermittency measurements.
