In order to simulate the thick trailing edges of turbine blades a slotted plate profile together with a newly designed nozzel was installed into the high-speed wind tunnel of the DLR Goettingen At different supersonic Mach numbers and at four coolant flow rates in the range of 0-2.5% pressure distribution measurements and probe measurements were performed. The flow field was visualized by schlieren photos and the instantaneous velocity field was quantitatively investigated by Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The measurements of the velocity field gave an insight into stationary effects, for example the change of shock strength with coolant flow rate, and instationary effects such as the existence of a vortex street in the wake. The PIV technique offers special advantages for the investigation of transonic flow fields, but also yields to special experimental difficulties, which are also describle in this article. Measured losses display a maximum at the downstream Mach number 1. This is strongly related to the behaviour of the base pressure. A loss minimum is achieved at moderate coolant flow rates, showing that an optimum coolant flow rate exists. The loss was analysed and separated into the loss contributions from the profile upstream of the trailing edge and the mixing loss due to the coolant flow.
