A number of turbulence models offered by the commercial code STAR-CD have been tested on the measurements published in the literature with the objective to compare their capabilities for the simulation of a flow and heat transfer in multiple impinging jets. Numerical predictions of the single jet and jet array air impinging heat transfer have been compared with experimental data. The comparison shows that only turbulence models with additional limiters for turbulence production in the stagnation zone are able to correctly predict the jet impingement heat transfer. Suga’s k-ε turbulence model with Yap-correction, k-ε RNG, V2F and SST turbulence models with different near wall modifications are in acceptable agreement with experiments. The deviations from the experimental data, which provide all the turbulence models, are analyzed.
