The present study investigates alternative jet impingement geometries aimed at the reduction of detrimental crossflow effects for use in combustor liner backside cooling. Through the use of a corrugated wall design, the spent air of upstream jets is routed past downstream jets with minimal interference. Three configurations of the design are studied. First, the jet spacing is held constant, and the design of the corrugations is changed for sparse arrays. The second part of the study studied the effects of the corrugated wall on dense arrays. The average jet Reynolds number, Red , is varied and tested for 20000, 40000, and 60000. Local Nusselt number distributions were evaluated using a transient liquid crystal technique. The results show that the corrugated wall design can significantly reduce the negative effects of crossflow especially at higher jet Reynolds numbers. Further, the design of the corrugations has a substantial impact on the performance of the geometry. The corrugated wall geometries with smaller bypass channels outperformed the geometries tested with larger channels. The use of corrugated jet impingement configurations would allow larger jet impingement arrays without sacrificing heat transfer effectiveness.
