An experimental study using Liquid crystal thermography technique is conducted to study the convective heat transfer enhancement in jet impingement cooling in the presence of porous media. Aluminium porous sample of 10 PPI with permeability 2.48e−7 and porosity 0.95 is used in the present study. Results are presented for two different Reynolds number 400 and 700 with four different configurations of jet impingement (1) without porous foams (2) over porous heat sink (3) with porous obstacle case (4) through porous passage. Jet impingement with porous heat sink showed a deterioration in average Nusselt number by 10.5% and 18.1% for Reynolds number of 400 and 700 respectively when compared with jet impingement without porous heat sink configuration. The results show that for Reynolds number 400, jet impingement through porous passage augments average Nusselt number by 30.73% whereas obstacle configuration enhances the heat transfer by 25.6% over jet impingement without porous medium. Similarly for Reynolds number 700, the porous passage configuration shows average Nusselt number enhancement by 71.09% and porous obstacle by 33.4 % over jet impingement in the absence of porous media respectively.
