The effect of the concave curvature on the flow of a streamwise 35° inclined jet issuing into a crossflow boundary layer has been investigated experimentally. Three-dimensional velocity measurements are performed in the near-field and some downstream region of jet exit by using a 5-hole directional probe. Since the main purpose is to investigate solely the effect of the concave curvature, the upper wall of the curved region is adjusted to minimize the effect of the streamwise pressure gradient. The results show that in the vicinity of the jet exit, the bound vortex dominates the flow structure, while in the far downstream region, the concave curvature plays an important role in converting the secondary flow into the Taylor-Görtler type flow. In addition, vortices rotating in the opposite direction with respect to the bound vortex is generated at both sides of the bound vortices, which stimulate the mixing of the jet and crossflow fluid. When the velocity ratio is large, the horseshoe vortex exists in the neighborhood of the jet exit, even though the strength is very weak compared with the bound vortex, however this horseshoe vortex may act as a kind of steady disturbance on the concave surface.
