A visualization technique is used to measure the heat transfer coefficient distribution on a flat plate on which either a single jet or an array of jets impinges. Liquid crystals coated on a mylar sheet are used to locate isotherms on a heated surface. By adjusting the surface heat flux, contours of constant heat transfer coefficient are obtained.
