Abstract: Vigorous experiments are conducted to investigate on effects of Reynolds number on heat dispersal over flat plate concerning constant thermal value 6 W/cm2 . This paper presents the experimental studies on cooling behavior with water jet impingement. Several influencing parameters pertaining to cooling behaviors of striking jets got recognized for investigating impacts over heat transfer characteristics. The parameters taken into account are nozzle diameter (3, 4, 5 and 6 mm), jet Reynolds number (800, 1600, 2400 and 3200), nozzle to plate spacing (20, 25, 30 and 35 mm) and jet inclination (30⁰, 45⁰, 60⁰, 75⁰ and 90⁰). Additionally, the studies are limited to a constant heat flux situation. The chary interpretations of results tell that performance remains boosted with regard to these key parameters. However, with the current experimental conditions, Reynolds number of 2400 offers adequate thermal characteristics and is the optimum.
