Abstract : The disclosure concerns a means for cooling the leading edges and trailing edges of turbine blades by cross-stream injection. Cooling is achieved by ejecting coolant from holes opposite either the leading or trailing edges of the blades, or both, with coolant distributed by the jet mixture on the leading edge and by recirculation in the dead air region on the trailing edge.
