This work shows numerical results for a jet impinging onto a flat plane covered with a layer of a porous material. Porosity of the porous layer is varied in order to analyze its effect on the local distribution of Nu. Macroscopic equations for mass and momentum ae obtained based on the 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 decreases the peak in Nu avoiding excessive heating or cooling near the stagnation region.
