Heat transfer measurements of a confined impingement cooling configuration with ribs on the target surfaces are presented. The assembly consists of four non-perpendicular walls of which one holds two rows of staggered inclined jets, each impinging on a different adjacent wall. The ribs are aligned with the inclined jet axes, have the same pitch and are staggered to the impinging jets. The flow exhausts through two staggered rows of holes opposing the impingement wall. The passage geometry is related to a modern gas turbine blade cooling configuration. A transient liquid crystal technique was used to take spatially resolved surface heat transfer measurements for the ground area between the ribs. A comparison with the smooth baseline configuration reveals local differences and a generally reduced heat transfer for the rib-roughened case. Furthermore, lumped heat capacity measurements of the ribs yielded area averaged heat transfer information for the ribs. From the combination of ground and rib heat transfer measurements it is concluded that the overall performance of the ribbed configuration depends on the Reynolds number. Of the five investigated jet Reynolds numbers from 10,000 up to 75,000, only for the highest Re the averaged Nusselt numbers increase slightly compared to the smooth baseline configuration.
