In this study, flow and heat transfer characteristics of two-dimensional impinging jets are investigated numerically. Flow geometries under consideration are single and multiple impinging jets issued from a plane wall. Both confined and unconfined configurations are simulated. Effects of Reynolds number and the distance between the jets are investigated. Results are obtained with a finite volume CFD code. Structured grids are used in all cases of the present study. Turbulence is treated with a two equation k-ε model. Different jet velocities have been examined corresponding to Reynolds numbers of 5,000 to 20,000. Results show that the Reynolds number has significant effect on the heat transfer rate and has no effect on the location of the maximum Nusselt number.
