Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) of a pulsed film cooling jet is presented to examine if pulsations of the coolant jet can enhance film cooling effectiveness. Calculations are performed for a cylindrical jet inclined at 30-degrees. The jet pulsation is defined by the duty cycle (DC) and the Strouhal number (St), both of which are varied in the present study. Calculations are done for a baseline steady blowing ratio of 1.5. With a peak blowing ratio (M) of 1.5, pulsing with a St = 0.32 and DC = 0.5 is shown to reduce jet blow-off and improve centerline and spanwise-averaged effectiveness over the steady M = 1.5 case.
