Heat Transfer and Thermal Characteristics Effects on Moving Plate Impinging from Cu-Water Nanofluid Jet

The present article is focused on modelling of flow and heat transfer behaviour of Cu-water nanofluid in a confined slot jet impingement on hot moving plate. Different parameters such as various moving plate velocities, nanoparticles at various concentrations, variation in turbulent Reynolds number and jet nozzle to plate distance have been considered to study the flow field and convective heat transfer performance of the system. Results of distribution of local and average Nusselt number and skin friction coefficients at the plate surface are shown to elucidate the heat transfer and fluid flow process. Qualitative analysis of both stream function and isotherm contours are carried out to perceive the flow pattern and heat transfer mechanism due to moving plate. The results revealed that average Nusselt number significantly rises with plate velocity in addition with jet inlet Reynolds number. Correlations of the average Nusselt numbers are presented.
