Local and average convective heat transfer coefficients were measured for arrays of widely spaced impinging air jets and correlated in terms of system geometry, air flow, and fluid properties. The configurations were square arrays of circular turbulent jets (spaced from 10–25 diameters apart) incident upon a flat isothermal target surface. Independent parameters were varied over ranges generally corresponding to gas turbine cooling applications. Local heat transfer coefficients were influenced by interference from neighboring jets only when the target plate and the jet orifice plate were less than five jet diameters apart. Average heat transfer coefficients were nearly equal for all the arrays tested as long as the coolant flow per unit area of target surface was held constant. In fact, there was a tendency for the more widely spaced configurations to produce slightly higher average heat transfer under such conditions.
