Various types of impinging jet flows are analytically modeled using inviscid free Gaussian jet solutions superimposed with experimentally fitted boundary layer models. Improved (more robust) and simplified solutions to existing models are defined. Velocity profiles, surface pressure distributions, and streamline plots are calculated for circular, plane, and annular impinging jets. The models show excellent agreement with existing experimental results in both laminar and turbulent conditions and for different Reynolds numbers.
