This study is an experimental and numerical analysis of the influence from changes in the conditions of inputs temperature and velocity on the behavior thermal and dynamic of a multi-jet swirling system impacting a flat plate. The experimental device comprising three diffusers arranged in line, of diameter D aloof 2D between the axes of their centers, impinging the plate perpendicularly at an impact height H = 6D. The swirl is obtained by a generator (swirl) of composed 12 fins arranged at 60° relative to the vertical placed just at the exit of the diffuser. By imposing the temperature and velocity for three input conditions with three studied configurations. The paper deals with find the configuration that optimizes the best thermal homogenization. The results show that the configuration having an equilibrated inlet temperature (T, T, T) is derived from a good temperature distribution on the baffle wall and a better thermal transfer from the plate. The system was numerically simulated by the fluent code by using the turbulence model (k–ε). This last has yielded results accorded to those experimental results.
Key words: Impinging swirling jet / multiple jet / thermal homogenization / plane plate / (k-ε) model
