Measurements are reported for the local heat transfer to an impinging air jet with and without a cross flow of air. At large jet-to-plate spacing the cross flow diminishes the peak heat transfer coefficient ; at a smaller spacing cross flow can increase the peak heat transfer coefficient. A correlation is obtained for the average heat transfer in the absence of cross flow.
