Abstract

Numerical and experimental study is carried out to investigate flow structure and heat transfer of air jet normally impinging on a flat plate. Three orifices of 5, 10 and 20 mm diameters and Z/d ratios in the range of 2 to 8 were used. The numerical simulations were performed with the ANSYS FLUENT for steady, three-dimensional, incompressible, and turbulent flow from the jet. The comparison of CFD predictions with experimental results show that a good agreement of the average Nusselt number, the pressure coefficients distributions, radial velocity distributions of the fee jet.
