This paper presents experimental flow field investigations of a film cooling scheme, referred to as nozzle scheme, on a flat plate using stereo PIV. The nozzle scheme has a cylindrical hole and internal obstacles to change the velocity distribution near the hole exit and hence the jet-mainstream interaction. Counter-rotating vortex pair (CRVP) is known to be one of the detrimental effects that affect the film cooling effectiveness. Previous CFD simulations demonstrated nozzle hole’s capability of reducing CRVP strength and enhancing film cooling effectiveness in comparison with a normal cylindrical hole. The present study examines the nozzle hole flow filed experimentally at blowing ratio ranged from 0.5 to 2.0 and compares with cylindrical hole. The experiments were conducted in a low-speed wind tunnel with a mainstream Reynolds number of 115,000 and the density ratio was 1.0 during all the investigations. The experimental results show that nozzle hole reduces streamwise vorticity of CRVP by an average of 55% at low blowing ratio, and 34%–40% at high blowing ratios. The velocity field and vorticity field of nozzle jet are compared with cylindrical jet. The result reveals that the nozzle jet forms a round bulk in contrast to the kidney shape jet core in cylindrical hole case. In addition, it is found that CRVP strength may not be a primary contributor to the jet lift-off.
