Heat transfer characteristics of an impinging air jet are experimentally investigated under a fixed pumping power condition. The effects of dimensionless pumping power on the Nusselt number are considered. The focus is on cases where the nozzle-to-plate spacing is equal to or less than one nozzle diameter. The results show that the Nusselt number is independent of the nozzle-to-plate spacing under fixed pumping power conditions, while the Nusselt number increases with decreasing the nozzle-to-plate spacing under fixed flow rate conditions. Based on the experimental results, new correlations for the stagnation and average Nusselt numbers of the impinging jet are developed as a function of the pumping power alone.
