Impingement jets have been applied in a wide variety of fields as they provide significantly high heat transfer on the impingement-jet stagnation zone. However, the crossflow in an impingement chamber developed by spent wall jets can disrupt and deflect the downstream jets in the array, leading to a decrease in the cooling performance of an array of impingement jets. A numerical analysis is made of the fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics in a corrugated structure that traps the spent air in the corrugations between impingement jets and reduces crossflow effects on downstream jets. All computations are performed by considering a three-dimensional, steady, and incompressible flow by using the ANSYS-CFX 15.0 code. The effects of the configuration parameters of the corrugated structure on crossflow reduction of the array of impingement jets are presented and discussed.
