  • Abstract

    This research presents the possibility of the jet impingement cooling technique configuration for stator of turbine blade under the transient heat transfer condition. The main goal of this study is to investigate the impingement cooling plate holes configuration and Reynolds number (Re) effect on the heat transfer which can be observed from the color play of the thermochromic liquid crystal (TLC). The findings proved that with the present of the small holes in between the main larger holes capable to enhance the heat transfer across the target surface. However, some criteria of the design need to be taken into count as it may produce different heat transfer performance of the impingement cooling technique. Therefore, in the range of predetermined design parameters, only several combinations that prevailed to achieve maximum heat transfer across the target plate.
