This work shows simulations for a turbulent jet impinging against a flat plane covered with a layer of permeable and thermally conducting material. Distinct energy equations are considered for the porous layer attached to the wall and for the fluid that impinges on it. Parameters such as Reynolds number, porosity, permeability, thickness and thermal conductivity of the porous layer are varied in order to analyze their effects on the local distribution of Nu. The macroscopic equations for mass, momentum and energy are obtained based on volume-average concept. The numerical technique employed for discretizing the governing equations was the control volume method with a boundary-fitted non-orthogonal coordinate system. The SIMPLE algorithm was used to handle the pressure-velocity coupling. Results indicate that inclusion of a porous layer eliminates the peak in Nu at the stagnation region. For highly porous and highly permeable material, simulations indicate that the integral heat flux from the wall is enhanced when a thermally conducting porous material is attached to the wall.
