A transient numerical investigation has been carried out in
this study to evaluate the effects of the conjugate heat transfer
(CHT) onto the thermal characteristics due to the air and water
jet impingement process. It is shown that the convective heat
transfer at the fluid-solid interface is influenced by the nozzle
size, boundary heat flux and thermal conductivity of the metal.
The thermal characteristics from the CHT process approaches
the one with no CHT process as the thermal conductivity of the
metal decreases. One of the important effects of the CHT
process is to redistribute the uniform boundary heat flux inside
the solid and create a non-uniform heat flux boundary at the
