Abstract
This paper presents computational study for a large diameter (216 mm) and small space ratios (S/D = 0.25 and 0.5) jet impingement flow. CFD-ACE code was used as the computational tools; the code was first validated by comparing its predictions with both CFD and experimental data from the literature. Then, the study was performed for two different Reynolds numbers: 7600, 17700 and two different space ratios: 0.25 and 0.5. Also two different turbulence models were utilized in this study: low Reynolds number turbulent k-ε and k-ω. The CFD results were compared with flow visualization results conducted at the University of Minnesota for the same configurations. The impact of choosing different inlet conditions on the CFD flow field was examined. The k-ε model showed greater sensitivity to the selection of the inlet conditions. Moreover, the k-ω model showed much better agreement with the experimental data than the k-ε model.
