Flow characteristics of turbulent impinging jets issuing, respectively, from a rectangular and a square nozzles have been investigated numerically through the solution of three-dimensional Navier-Strokes equations in steady state. Two geometries with two nozzle-to-plate spacings of four and eight times of hydraulic diameters of the jet pipes, and two Reynolds numbers of 20000 and 30000 have been considered with fully developed inlet boundary conditions. An RNG based k–ε turbulence model and a deferred correction QUICK scheme in conjunction with the wall function method have been applied to the prediction of the flow fields within semi-confined spaces. A common feature revealed by the computational results is the presence of a toroidal recirculation zone around the jet. An adverse pressure gradient is found at the impingement surface downstream the stagnation point. Boundary layer separation will occur if the gradient is strong enough, and the separation manifests itself as a secondary recirculation zone at the surface. In addition, three-dimensional simulations reveal the existence of two and four pronounced streamwise velocity off-center peaks at the cross-planes near to the impingement plate, respectively, in the rectangular and square impinging jet flows. These peaks are found forming at the horizontal planes where the wall jets start forming accompanied by two or four pairs of counter-rotating vortex rings. It is believed that the formation of the off-center velocity peaks is due to the vorticity diffusion along the wall jet as the jet impinges on the target plate.
