A trailing edge slot film cooling configuration designed for enhanced surface effectiveness at a decreased coolant flowrate is proposed. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques were used to obtain measurements of the mean 3D velocity and concentration fields. These measurements are compared to previously reported results on two other trailing edge configurations. The surface effectiveness of the proposed slot film cooling configuration is higher than that of the baseline configuration, even at a 25% lower coolant flowrate. The mean fields are used to calculate an isotropic, spatially-varying turbulent diffusivity for each of these trailing edge configurations. These diffusivities are compared to offer insight into the effect of land shape on turbulence properties.
