Various transient liquid crystal methods have been widely and routinely employed to measure surface heat transfer coefficients. Typically, the heat transfer surface was modeled as a one-dimensional, transient heat conduction over a semi-infinite surface to retrieve information of the surface heat transfer coefficients. To satisfy the theoretical initial and boundary conditions, inconvenient and/or complex designs are required. Frequently, the conditions are not exactly satisfied. To resolve these issues, an approach of measuring heat transfer coefficients coupling the transient liquid crystal method with a 3-D inverse transient conduction scheme was developed and was applied to a nonuniform heat transfer surface produced by arrays of impinging jets.

The present method utilized the hue-angle method to process the color images captured from the liquid crystal color play. Instantaneous temperature readings from embedded thermocouples were utilized for in-situ calibration of hue angle for each data set. The convective heat transfer coefficient results were obtained by performing a 3-D inverse transient conduction calculation over the entire jet impingement target surface and the substrate. The results of average heat transfer coefficients agreed well with previous experimental results of point measurements by thermocouples.
