A Study on the Heat Transfer Enhancement by Mesh Geum, Seong-Min; Jeong, Dong-Su; Kim, Jong-Bo;
The objective of this research was to investigate the enhancement of heat transfer by mesh in impinging air jet system. The technique used in this research is to place mesh as a turbulence promoter in front of the impinging plate. The heat transfer characteristics with and without mesh, the effect of clearances between impinging plate and mesh, the effect of distance between nozzle exit and impinging plate, and the effect of nozzle exit velocity have been studied experimentally. When mesh was installed in front of the impinging plate, heat transer has been increased due to the acceleration between rectangular holes and divided small jets. When clearances are changed, heat transfer comes to a maximum under the condition of C = 1 mm, irrespective of nozzle exit velocity or H/B. Also the average heat transfer enhancement with mesh has been increased about 44% under the condition of U = 18 m/s, H/B = 2 and C = 1 mm, compared to the result of a flat plate without mesh. And the results of this research are compared with existing heat transfer augmentation method by rectangular or circular rod.
