Gas turbines have been widely used. With the continuous improvement of the performance of gas turbines, the turbine inlet temperature has greatly exceeded the heat resistance limit of the turbine blade material, so advanced cooling technology is required. The film cooling effectiveness distribution over the blade under the effect of wake was obtained by Pressure Sensitive Paint (PSP) technique. The test blade has 5 rows of chevron film holes on the pressure side, 3 rows of cylindrical film holes on the leading edge and 3 rows of chevron film holes on the suction side. The mainstream Reynolds number is 130,000 based on the blade chord length, and the mainstream turbulence intensity is 2.7%. The upstream wake was simulated by the spoken-wheel type wake generator. The film cooling effectiveness was measured at three wake Strouhal numbers (0, 0.12 and 0.36) and three mass flux ratios (MFR1, MFR2 and MFR3). The results show that the increase of mass flux ratio leads a decrease of the film cooling effectiveness on the suction surface. In the wake condition, the effect of mass flux ratio is weakened. Wake leads a marked decrease of the film cooling effectiveness over most blade surface except for the surface near leading edge on the pressure surface. In the high mass flux ratio condition, the effect of wake on the film cooling effectiveness is weakened on the suction surface and strengthened on the pressure surface.
