This paper presents simulations for a jet impinging against a flat plane covered with a layer of a porous material. Macroscopic equations for mass, momentum and energy, for the fluid and for the porous matrix, are obtained based on the volume-average concept. The numerical technique employed for discretizing the governing equations was the control volume method with a boundary-fitted non-orthogonal coordinate system. The SIMPLE algorithm was used to handle the pressure-velocity coupling. The effect of porosity and energy model on the local distribution of Nu was analyzed. Results indicate that for low porosity materials, a substantially different Nu number is calculated depending on the energy model applied.
