The present numerical study is conducted to investigate the flow and heat transfer characteristics for impingement cooling on concave or convex dimpled plate with four different dimple arrangements. The investigation of the impingement cooling on the flat plate is also conducted to serve as a contrast and these results are compared with experimental measurements to verify the computational method. Dimples studied here are placed, relative to impingement holes, in either spanwise shifted, in staggered, in in-line, or in streamwise shifted arrangements. The flow structure, pressure loss and heat transfer characteristics of the concave and convex dimpled plate of four different dimple arrangements have been obtained and compared with flat plate for the Reynolds number range of 15000 to 35000. The results show that compared with flat plate, the added concave or convex dimples only causes a negligible increase in the pressure loss, and the pressure loss is insensitive to concave or convex dimple arrangement patterns. In addition, compared with flat plate, both spanwise shifted and staggered concave dimple arrangements show better heat transfer performance, while in-line concave dimple arrangement show worse results. Besides that, the heat transfer performance for streamwise shifted concave dimple arrangement is the worst. Furthermore, compared with flat plate, all convex dimple arrangements studied here show better heat transfer performance.
