Abstract

A numerical analysis for fluid flow and conjugate convection/conduction heat transfer of a single confined air laminar slot jet on a discretely heated finite thickness plate has been performed. A highly non uniform grid has been set up for the resolution of the boundary layer. Streamlines and isotherms patterns at different heat source lengths and jet Reynolds numbers are presented. The local Nusselt number is nearly independent of the impinged plate thickness whereas it is affected by the heater length. 1 Introduction In recent years jet impingement heat transfer has been widely used as a high- performance technique for heating, cooling or
