Large Eddy Simulation study of plane impinging jets with different inlet velocity profiles was conducted. The inlet velocity profile was forced at a frequency equal to 600Hz and amplitude equal to 30% of the mean inlet velocity. The Reynold number, based on the jet width W and the inlet velocity, is equal to 5600. The distance of the jet exit from the target wall was varied from 2W to 10W to cover different types of impinging jets with different flow structures. The time-averaged Nusselt Number Nu profiles, along the curved wall, are characterized by two peaks for the shortest distance 2W and only one peak, at the impingement region, for the largest distance 10W.

The first peak, at the impingement region is investigated through profiles of the mean axial velocity, the rms axial velocity, the mean static pressure, and the mean static temperature plotted on the jet centerline. For the second peak of the Nu (2W case), the turbulence level and the thickness of the highly turbulent layer near the curved wall were depicted on curved lines parallel and very close to the target wall.

Forcing the considered jets at 600Hz was found to reduce the Nu while a fully developed inlet velocity profile causes an important increase of the Nu at the impingement region compared with flat inlet velocity profiles.
