A novel test rig will help engineers characterise jet spray cooling of jet engines
All engines have cooling systems in place to keep components within their operating temperatures. Impingement cooling relies on an array of jets of high-velocity gas or fluid that impinges on a surface and achieves locally high heat transfer. Its use is widespread in industry and even in the freezing of tissues in cryosurgery. The EU-funded ACCENTO project will support its successful application to aerospace engines with a test rig to help engineers reliably predict the aero-thermal behaviour of impingement cooling system concepts.
