Limited available data suggest a substantial impact of Mach number on the heat transfer from an array of jets impinging on a surface at fixed Reynolds number. Many jet array heat transfer correlations currently in use are based on tests in which the jet Reynolds number was varied by varying the jet Mach number. Hence, this data may be inaccurate for high Mach numbers. Results from the present study are new and innovative because they separate the effects of jet Reynolds number and jet Mach number for the purposes of validating and improving correlations that are currently in use. The present study provides new data on the separate effects of Reynolds number and Mach number for an array of impinging jets in the form of discharge coefficients, local and spatially averaged Nusselt numbers, and local and spatially averaged recovery factors. The data are unique because data are given for impingement jet Mach numbers as high as 0.60 and impingement jet Reynolds numbers as high as 60,000, and because the effects of Reynolds number and Mach number are separated by providing data at constant Reynolds number because the Mach number is varied, and data at constant Mach number because the Reynolds number is varied. As such, the present data are given for experimental conditions not previously examined, which are outside the range of applicability of current correlations.
