Jet impingement cooling remains one of the key methods in various high-end cooling applications as it can induce higher heat transfer rates. The objective of this preliminary investigation is to shed some light on micro-impingement cooling and assess the accuracy for a future 3-dimensional turbine blade model. For the purpose of this study, several micro-jet impingement cases are modeled in Gambit and iterated with Fluent. The reference model consists of a single 500μm cylindrical nozzle impinging on a constant temperature flat plate. Conducive results were found on the effects of turbulence model, Reynolds number, and H/D ratio for the Nusselt distribution on the flat plate. The Reynolds numbers iterated were: 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000. The different H/D ratios modeled were: 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. In general, it was observed that a higher Reynolds number increased the heat transfer on the plate, but the jet to target spacing had no significant impact on it. All results were validated via comparison with several published experimental data, the deviation margins indicated a good agreement.
