One of the main challenges of spray cooling technology is the prediction of local and average heat transfer coefficients on the heater surface. It is hypothesized that the local heat transfer coefficient can be predicted from the local normal pressure produced by the spray. In this study, hollow cone, full cone, and flat fan sprays operated at three standoff distances, five spray pressures, and two nozzle orientations were used to identify the relation between impingement pressure and heat transfer coefficient in the single phase regime. PF-5060, PAO-2, and PSF-3 were used as test fluids, resulting in Prandtl number variation between 12 to 75. A micro-heater array operated at constant temperature was used to measure the local heat flux. A separate test rig was used to make impingement pressure measurements for the same geometry and spray pressure. The heat flux data were then compared with the corresponding impingement pressure data to develop a pressure-based correlation for spray cooling heat transfer. The maximum deviation between the experimental data and prediction was within ±25%.
