This paper describes the behavior of the injected jet on the flat surface in lateral injection of the film cooling. Simultaneous velocity and temperature measurements were made by the double-wire probe. The test surface was also covered with an encapsulated temperature-sensitive liquid crystal. The image processing system based on the temperature and hue of the liquid crystal calibration provides the surface temperature distributions. The tests were conducted at three mass flux ratios, 0.5, 0.85, and 1.2. The laterally injected jet has an asymmetric structure with a large scale of vortex motion on one side caused by the interaction with the primary stream. Asymmetry is promoted with mass flux ratio increased, resulting in low film-cooling effectiveness.
