Jet impingement is a method of the heat transfer enhancement applied in the engineering systems. The idea is to generate fast-flow fluid jet which impinge on the heated (or cooled) surface, causing significantly higher heat transfer rate. Although some flat surface jet impingement cases are described in the literature, the validated data is still limited. The reason is coming from the fact, that these flows are hydrodynamically complex. Therefore the numerical analysis is necessary to understand the phenomena, especially in the range of turbulent flow. The well-known and accurate method is Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) approach. However, depending on the applied turbulence model, various results can be obtained. The reason is that the jet impingement strongly depends on the complex boundary layer effects and their resolving is still challenging for RANS models and until now it is their weakest point. In the paper, the hydrodynamic and thermal, numerical results of jet impingement are presented, depending on selected RANS based models. The aim was to indicate their ability to anticipate the turbulence parameters.
