Impingement heat transfer is significantly affected by initial cross-flow or by the presence of cross-flow from upstream spent jets. In this study, a zero cross-flow design is presented. The zero-crossflow design creates spacing between hole arrays to allow for spent flow to be directed away from impinging jets. Three configurations with different impingement holes placements are studied and compared with pure impingement with spent crossflow cases for the same jet Reynolds number. Three jet Reynolds numbers are studied for Rej = 10000, 20000, and 30000. Detailed heat transfer distributions are obtained using the transient liquid crystal technique. The zero-cross flow design clearly shows minimal degradation of impingement heat transfer due to crossflow compared to conventional design with lower mass flow rate requirement and lesser number of overall impingement holes due to the reduced cross-flow effect on the impingement region.
