Heat (mass) transfer experiments have been performed for a single circular jet impinging perpendicular to a confined disk, with the spent air being collected in an annulus which surrounds the jet delivery tube. This configuration provides precise control of the surface area affected by the impinging jet and also assures complete collection of the spent air. During the course of the experiments, parametric variations were made of the dimensionless separation distance between the jet origin and the impingement disk, of the ratio of disk diameter to the jet diameter, and of the Reynolds number. It was found that the heat (mass) transfer coefficient at the impingement surface increased substantially with a decrease in the jet diameter. Furthermore, for the smaller diameter jet, there was an optimum separation distance at which a maximum value of the heat (mass) transfer coefficient was achieved. For a jet of larger diameter, the transfer coefficient decreased monotonically as the separation distance increased.
