The present study deals with trailing edge film cooling on the pressure side cut-back of gas turbine airfoils. Before being ejected tangentially onto the inclined cut-back surface the coolant air passes a partly converging passage that is equipped with turbulators such as pin fins and ribs. The experiments are conducted in a generic set-up and cover a broad variety of internal cooling designs. A subsonic atmospheric open-loop wind tunnel is utilized for the tests. The test conditions are characterized by a constant Reynolds number of Rehg = 250,000, a turbulence intensity of Tuhg = 7%, and a hot gas temperature of Thg = 500K. Due to the ambient temperature of the coolant, engine realistic density ratios between coolant and gas can be realized. Blowing ratios cover a range of 0.20<M<1.25. The experimental data to be presented include discharge coefficients, adiabatic film cooling effectiveness and heat transfer coefficients in the near slot region (x/H<15). The results clearly demonstrate the strong influence of the internal cooling design and the relatively thick pressure side lip (t/H = 1) on film cooling performance downstream of the ejection slot.
