The heat transfer performance of two microjet arrays was investigated using degassed deionized water and air. The inline jet arrays had diameters of and , a spacing of , a standoff of ( and 4.6, and 3.7), and jet-to-heater area ratios from 0.036 to 0.16. Average heat transfer coefficients with deionized water were obtained for and ranged from to . A heat flux of was attained with inlet water and an average surface temperature of . The Reynolds number range for the same arrays with air was with average heat transfer coefficients of to . The effect of the Mach number on the area-averaged Nusselt number was found to be negligible. The data were compared with available correlations for submerged jet array heat transfer.
