Comprehensive impingement heat transfer coefficients data are presented with varied Reynolds number, hole spacing, jet-to-target distance, and hole inclination utilizing transient liquid crystal. The impingement configurations include: streamwise and spanwise jet-to-jet spacing (X/D, Y/D) are 4∼8 and jet-to-target plate distance (Z/D) is 0.75∼3, which composed a test matrix of 36 different geometries. The Reynolds numbers vary between 5,000 and 25,000. Additionally, hole inclination pointing to the upstream direction (θ: 0 deg∼40 deg) is also investigated to compare with normal impingement jets. Local and averaged heat transfer coefficients data are presented to illustrate that (1) surface Nusselt numbers increase with streamwise development for low impingement distance, while decrease for large impingement distance. The increase or decrease variations are also influenced by Reynolds number, streamwise and spanwise spacings. (2) Nusselt numbers of impingement jets with inclined angle are similar to those of normal impingement jets. Due to the increase or decrease variations corresponding to small or large impingement distance, a two-regime-based correlation, based on that of Florschuetz et al., is developed to predict row-averaged Nusselt number. The new correlation is capable to cover low Z/D∼0.75 and presents better prediction of row-averaged Nusselt number, which proves to be an effective impingement design tool.
