For a better understanding of the turbulence structures attached to film cooling jets, mean flow velocities and turbulent fluctuations were measured by means of 3D hot wire anemometry in the injection zone of a linear, large scale, high pressure turbine cascade with leading edge film cooling. Near the stagnation point, the blades are equipped with one row of film cooling holes each on the suction and pressure side. Two basically different coolant jet situations are compared: On the suction side the jet features the ordinary kidney vortex. On the pressure side, the jet separates completely from the blade surface since it is located above a large recirculation zone created by a locally adverse pressure gradient and a flow separation near the pressure side injection. The measured Reynolds stresses were analyzed with regard to turbulence production and diffusion. The Bousinesque Hypothesis was tested and could not be confirmed. It was found that the turbulence is highly anisotropic.

In addition to the brief description of the experimental set up and the acquired data, given in this paper, the complete information are published as a test case (Ardey and Fottner, 1998) that is directly accessible via internet at: http://www.unibw-muenchen.de/campus/LRT12/welcome.html
