A confined jet impingement configuration has been investigated in which the matter of interest is the convective heat transfer from the air flow to the passage walls. The geometry is similar to gas turbine blade cooling applications. The setup is distinct from usual cooling passages by the fact that no crossflow and no bulk flow directions are present. The flow exhausts through two staggered rows of holes opposing the impingement wall. Hence, a complex 3-D vortex system arises, which entails a complex heat transfer situation. The transient thermochromic liquid crystal (TLC) method was used in previous studies to measure the heat transfer on the passage walls. Due to the nature of these experiments, the fluid as well as the wall temperature vary with location and time. As a prerequisite of the transient TLC technique, the heat transfer coefficient is assumed to be constant over the transient experiment. Therefore, it is the scope of this article to qualify this assumption and to validate the results at discrete locations. For this purpose, fast response surface thermocouples and heat flux sensors were applied, in order to gain information on the temporal evolution of the wall heat fluxes. The linear relation between heat flux and temperature difference could be verified for all measurement sites. This validates the assumption of a constant heat transfer coefficient. Nusselt number evaluations from independent techniques show a good agreement, considering the respective uncertainty ranges. For all investigated sites, the Nusselt numbers range within ±9% of the values gained from the TLC measurement.
