This paper presents the results of a detailed hydrodynamic study of a row of inclined jets issuing into a crossflow with a density ratio of injectant to free stream of 2. Laser-Doppler anemometry was used to measure the vertical and streamwise components of velocity for a jet-to-free stream mass flux ratio of 0.5. Mean velocity components and turbulent Reynolds normal and shear stress components were measured at locations in a vertical plane along the centerline of the jet from 1 diameter upstream to 30 diameters downstream of the jet. The results, which have application to film cooling, give a quantitative picture of the entire flow field, from the approaching flow upstream of the jet, through the interaction region of the jet and free stream, to the relaxation region downstream where the flow field approaches that of a standard turbulent boundary layer.
