Abstract

The heat transfer and flow characteristics of air jet impingement on a curved surface are investigated with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach. The first applied model is a one-equation SGS model for large eddy simulation (LES) and the second one is the SST-SAS hybrid RANS-LES. These models are utilized to study the flow physics in impinging process on a curved surface for different jet-to-surface (h/B) distances at two Reynolds numbers namely, 2960 and 4740 based on the jet exit velocity (Ue) and the hydraulic diameter (2B). The predictions are compared with the experimental data in the literature and also the results from RANS k-epsilon model. Comparisons show that both models can produce relatively good results. However, one-equation model (OEM) produced more accurate results especially at impingement region at lower jet-to-surface distances. In terms of heat transfer, the OEM also predicted better at different jet-to-surface spacings. It is also observed that both models show similar performance at higher h/B ratios.
