Computational fluid dynamics plays an important role in engineering design. To gain insight into solving problems involving complex industrial flows, such as impinging gas-jet systems (IJS), an evaluation of several eddy viscosity models, applied to these IJS has been made. Good agreement with experimental mean values for the field velocities and Nusselt number was obtained, but velocity fluctuations and local values of Nusselt number along the wall disagree with the experiments in some cases. Experiments show a clear relation between the nozzle-to-plate distance and the Nusselt number at the stagnation point. Those trends were only reproduced by some of the numerical experiments. The conclusions of this study are useful in the field of heat transfer predictions in industrial IJS devices, and therefore for its design.
