Impinging air jets are widely used in industry for heating, cooling and drying. Single and multiple impinging air jets provide the best configuration for convective heat and mass transfer to a surface. In this study, the convection air jets were examined numerically. Air velocity (12, 23 and 35 m/s), geometry dimensions (H/D distance= 4, 6, 8, 10, 12), number of nozzles (single and double) and the distance between nozzles (n = 50, 75, 100) were selected as parameters. For single nozzle, the most efficient condition was seen in H/D=10 and the highest Reynolds number. It was determined that the efficiency of heat transfer after H/D=10 has decreased for single nozzle. The most efficient heat transfer for the double nozzle was obtained for the 12114 of Reynolds number and H/D=8. In this study, a numerical approach is presented to find an optimum solution for cooling problems in the electronics industry.
