An experimental study is performed to examine the heat transfer characteristics of impinging circular jet onto a heated circular disc. The disc is heated under constant heat flux and it has an inclination angle with impinging jet in the range of 90 degrees <= phi <= 150 degrees. The air is supplied using a radial fan. The fluid flows through a designed tunnel. Experiments were performed under different Reynolds number, 2800, 9000, and 36,000, and different values of inclination angle of the disk and jet-to-plate distance to jet diameter ratio H/D(h) as 5, 10, and 15. The results of experiments showed that the most effective parameter is the inclination angle between jet and heater. Both locations of stagnation point and heat transfer are affected from this parameter. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
