Three-dimensional mean velocity and concentration fields have been measured for a water flow in a pressure side cutback trailing edge film cooling geometry consisting of rectangular film cooling slots separated by tapered lands. Three-component mean velocities were measured with conventional magnetic resonance velocimetry, while time-averaged concentration distributions were measured with a magnetic resonance concentration technique for flow at two Reynolds numbers (Re) differing by a factor of 2, three blowing ratios, and with and without an internal pin fin array in the coolant feed channel. The results show that the flows are essentially independent of Re for the regime tested in terms of the film cooling surface effectiveness, normalized velocity profiles, and normalized mean streamwise vorticity. Blowing ratio changes had a larger effect, with higher blowing ratios resulting in surface effectiveness improvements at downstream locations. The addition of a pin fin array within the slot feed channel made the spanwise distribution of coolant at the surface more uniform. Results are compared with transonic experiments in air at realistic density ratios described by Holloway et al. (2002a).
