Abstract

A single air jet or an array of air jets, impinging normally on a surface, may be used to achieve enhanced heat and mass transfer coefficients for convective heating, cooling and drying. To provide data for designers of industrial equipment, a programme of research has been implemented to study the heat and mass transfer processes. An original optimization of nozzle arrays under impinging air jets has been given for both academic and industrial users. Also optimum parameters presented here are simple and have a wide applicability.
