A confined jet impingement configuration has been investigated in which the matter of interest is the convective heat transfer from the airflow to the passage walls. The geometry is similar to gas turbine applications. The setup is distinct from usual cooling passages by the fact that no crossflow and no bulk flow direction are present. The flow exhausts through two staggered rows of holes opposing the impingement wall. Hence, a complex 3-D vortex system arises, which entails a complex heat transfer situation. The transient Thermochromic Liquid Crystal (TLC) method was used to measure the heat transfer on the passage walls. Due to the nature of the experiment, the fluid as well as the wall temperature vary with location and time. As a prerequisite of the transient TLC technique, the heat transfer coefficient is assumed to be constant over the transient experiment. Therefore, additional measures were taken to qualify this assumption. The linear relation between heat flux and temperature difference could be verified for all measurement sites. This validates the assumption of a constant heat transfer coefficient which was made for the transient TLC experiments. Nusselt number evaluations from all techniques show a good agreement, considering the respective uncertainty ranges. For all sites the Nusselt numbers range within ±9% of the values gained from the TLC measurement.
