Abstract

This article presents a study which sought to enhance heat transfer by employing a twin jet impingement mechanism (TJIM) and investigating the impact of the distance between the nozzles and plate on the Nusselt number (Nu) and heat transfer coefficient. This investigation was additionally based on the measurements of the heat flux temperature micro foil sensor and IR thermal imaging. A computational study of the cooling heated plate, through simulating the electronic components by the TJIM, was investigated using the RNG k-ϵ turbulence model. The jet-plate position was changed at the different jet-to-plate distances S = 1, 6, and 11 cm, Reynolds number = 17,000. The main flow structure, the static pressure, local and average Nus and heat transfer coefficient, were also examined. The findings have yielded new information about TJIM, and represent a new contribution about the flow and heat transfer characteristics of TJIM, and means of improving the rate of heat transfer in the passive heat transfer technique. The results of the various positions of the TJIM determined that the first model is, in fact, the best model for the heat transfer coefficient and the highest Nu, when S = 1 cm and H = 1 cm. Furthermore, the irregular distribution of the local Nu and the local heat transfer coefficient (h) on the impinged surface are due to the increase or decrease in the turbulence of flow on the measured surface.
