This paper reports on the validation of the assumption of quasi steady behaviour of pulsating cooling injection in the near hole flow region. The respective experimental data are taken in a flat plate wind tunnel at ETH Zürich. The facility simulates the film cooling row flow field on the pressure side of a turbine blade. Engine representative non-dimensionals are achieved, providing a faithful model at larger scale. Heating the free stream air and strongly cooling the coolant gives the required density ratio between coolant and free-stream. The coolant is injected with different frequency and amplitude. The three dimensional velocities are recorded using non-intrusive PIV, seeding is provided for both air streams. Two different cylindrical hole geometries are studied, with different angles. Blowing ratio is varied over a range to simulate pressure side film cooling. The general flow field, the jet trajectory and the streamwise circulation are utilized in the validation of the quasi steady assumption.
