Abstract: Wall jet flow is used for industrial cooling process, cooling of electronic component mounted on circuit board etc. Numerical simulations have been carried out for laminar two dimensional wall jet flows along curved cavity having a channel mounted thin fin. The commercial finite volume code FLUENT is chosen to resolve the mass balance and momentum balance equations. Fluid flow characteristics are investigated for different Reynolds number (Re=100 to 600) and for different fin geometry. The results are plotted in the form of velocity profiles and streamline contours. The effect of fin length on the laminar wall jet characteristics is also investigated.
