Abstract

Gas jet assisting process finds wide application in industry due to its ability to alter the heat transfer characteristics of the region subjected to jet assisted processing. In the present study, jet impingement onto a cavity with elevated wall temperature is considered. The flow and heat transfer equations are solved numerically using a control volume approach. Reynolds Stress Turbulence Model is employed to account for the turbulence. The simulations are repeated for four cavity depths and two gas jet velocities. It is found that the stagnation zone moves slightly further into the cavity with increasing cavity depth. The flow generated behind the stagnation zone in the cavity influences the heat transfer characteristics in this region, particularly for the cavities with relatively large depth.
