Numerical investigation was carried out to study the heat transfer performance for a high-speed rotating cylindrical surface subjected to single row array round jets impingement, under a very small gap spacing. Various parameters that affect heat transfer, such as the fluid density, flow velocity and Nusselt number distributions of the radius clearance were studied based on varied nozzle to target surface spacing H and mass flow rate. It has been found that the fluid density was a dominant factor and the velocity was the secondary factor for the gas jet heat transfer performances. The overall heat transfer was improved with a reduction in the number of nozzles, for given inlet mass flow rate boundary conditions. The decrease of H/di (di, nozzle diameter) may have positive or negative effects on the heat transfer performance from the impingement surface. Reducing the radius gap H, for a certainty, increases the average density of the fluid in the clearance, which is desirable in applications that enhance heat transfer performance. But when the radius gap (H) is small enough, increasing di may have a negative impact on heat transfer.
Key words: Gas jet impingement / heat transfer efficiency / cooling
