Abstract: The flow field and heat transfer investigation of water jet impingement on a solid block is numerically analysed for various Reynolds numbers using commercial finite volume-based method. The purpose of this simulation is to investigate the effect of Reynolds number on flow field and heat transfer. In the present investigation, it is observed that the reattachment length increases with the increase of Reynolds number. The number and size of vortices increase with the increase of Reynolds number. The horizontal velocity profiles for various regions in computational domain are used to predict where the flow gets developed. The bottom wall Nusselt number grows when the Reynolds number increases. The peak Nusselt number occurs at the stagnation point of jet impingement.
