The detailed mean flow and turbulence measurements of a turbulent air slot jet impinging on two different semi-circular convex surfaces were investigated in both free jet and impingement wall jet regions at a jet Reynolds number Rew= 12,000, using a hot-wire X-probe anemometer. The parametric effects of dimensionless circumferential distance, S/W=2.79-7.74, slot jet-to-impingement surface distance Y/W=1-13, and surface curvature D/W=10.7 and 16 on the impingement wall jet flow development along a semi-circular convex surface were examined. The results show that the effect of surface curvature D/W increases with increasing S/W. Compared with transverse Reynolds normal stress, v2̄/Um2, the streamwise Reynolds normal stress, u2̄/Um2is strongly affected by the examined dimensionless parameters of D/W, Y/W and S/W in the near-wall region. It is also evidenced that the Reynolds shear stress, -uv̄/U m2 is much more sensitive to surface curvature, D/W.
