The local surface temperature, heat flux, heat transfer coefficient, and Nusselt number were measured for an inline array of circular, normal jets of single-phase, liquid water impinging on a copper block with a common outlet for spent flow, and an experimental two-dimensional (2D) surface map was obtained by translating the jet array relative to the sensors. The effects of variation in jet height, jet pitch, confining wall angle, and average jet Reynolds number were investigated. A strong interaction between the effects of the geometric parameters was observed, and a 5 deg confining wall was seen to be an effective method of managing the spent flow for jet impingement cooling of power electronics. The maximum average heat transfer coefficient of 13,100 W/m2 K and average Nusselt number of 67.7 were measured at an average jet Reynolds number of 14,000.
