Experiments are conducted to determine the heat transfer to a jet impinging at different oblique angles to a plane surface. The main portion of the test plate contains a composite sheet of temperature-sensitive liquid crystal, which is sandwiched between a thin metallic-foil heater and a specially designed liquid bath. The results indicate a displacement of the peak heat transfer from the geometric center of the jet origin, the displacement being a function primarily of impingement angle. Contours of constant heat transfer coefficient are obtained and correlated with an empirical equation that permits determination of average Nusselt numbers over areas of interest.
