The purpose of this research paper is to investigate the effect of surface roughness on heat transfer. This was achieved by investigating the heat transfer in two cases: a smooth, horizontal surface (the baseline case) and the same surface with a roughness element added to it. The roughness elements took the shape of cubical pin-fin. The roughness element was further investigated by varying its height and width (e by e) to study their impact on the average Nu. Results are presented in the form of average Nusselt number Nu within and beyond the stagnation region. Each roughness element was arranged in a circle concentric with the geometric centre (i.e. centre of jet) with a radius of one and a half jet diameters (R/D = 1.5) The jet diameter kept constant for all simulations (D=13.5mm) where the plane was located at H/D = 6 below the jet, for all the tests with a jet Reynolds number of 20,000 and jet temperature is 20°. The cubical pin-fin was tested for six different heights (e) from 0.25 mm to 1.50 mm in incremental steps of 0.25 mm for jet angle (α) of 90°.
