Flow and heat transfer of a compressible impinging jet

Abstract : The influence of injection Mach number over the flow and heat transfer of an impinging air jet is investigated. For a given injection Reynolds number, jets with different injection diameters have been studied, decoupling the effects of injection Reynolds and Mach numbers. Three injection diameters were used, varying injection Mach number from 0.3 to 0.8. The effects of injection-to-plate distance were also studied. Flow was studied using Particle Image Velocimetry and infrared thermography was used to investigate both Nusselt number and adiabatic wall temperature (also called recuperation temperature) variations along the plate. The main effect of Mach number rise on the flow is a decrease in the number of Kelvin-Helmholtz vortices, reducing the amplitude of the secondary maximum of Nusselt number, particularly for low injection to plate spacing. Moreover, for Mach number low values, the adiabatic wall temperature is nearly constant whereas for higher values variations occur depending on injection-to-plate distance. For low distances, the mean radial velocity close to the wall, which presents relatively high values, reduces the temperature above the jet injection total temperature. For higher injection-to-plate distances, ambient air, with higher static temperature, is brought into the jet, increasing the static temperature of the jet and leading to adiabatic wall temperature superior to jet injection total temperature.
