The present study deals with trailing edge film cooling on the pressure side cutback of gas turbine airfoils. Before being ejected tangentially onto the inclined cut-back surface the coolant air passes a partly converging passage that is equipped with turbulators such as pin fins and ribs. The experiments are conducted in a generic setup and cover a broad variety of internal cooling designs. A subsonic atmospheric open-loop wind tunnel is utilized for the tests. The test conditions are characterized by a constant Reynolds number of , a turbulence intensity of , and a hot gas temperature of . Due to the ambient temperature of the coolant, engine realistic density ratios between coolant and hot gas can be realized. Blowing ratios cover a range of . The experimental data to be presented include discharge coefficients, adiabatic film cooling effectiveness, and heat transfer coefficients in the near slot region . The results clearly demonstrate the strong influence of the internal cooling design and the relatively thick pressure side lip on film cooling performance downstream of the ejection slot.
