Experimental Investigations on Influences of Nozzle to Plate Spacing and Nozzle Inclination on cooling characteristics of impinging water jets

Authors(1) :-Nirmal Kumar Kund

The present study involves the experimental investigations of the heat transfer characteristics of axisymmetric water jet impingement on a heated plate. Various parameters affecting the thermal performance of axisymmetric water jet are identified and their effects on heat transfer behavior are also studied. The key parameters considered are nozzle to plate spacing (20-35 mm) and nozzle inclination (30-90). In addition, all the investigations here are restricted to a constant heat flux condition. Results indicate that the water jet performance can be optimized with respect to these influencing parameters. However, with the present experimental conditions, the jet inclination of 60 with the nozzle diameter of 5 mm, nozzle to plate spacing of 25 mm and the jet Reynolds number of 2400 gives moderate heat transfer behavior and is the optimum one.
