In the present study, computational investigation of flow characteristics and heat transfer from a small rectangular channel has been investigated. A turbulent jet impinges from a nozzle attached to the top wall of the rectangular channel and at the entrance of the rectangular channel, turbulent uniform flow took place. The bottom plate is heated and convex dimples are attached for heat transfer enhancement. Finite volume method with SST k − ω turbulence model was used for the numerical simulations. The duct Reynolds number (at the inlet) has been varied in the range of 10000 − 50000 and Reynolds number at the nozzle has been varied in the range of 6000 − 12000, respectively. It has been shown that the heat transfer rate in the presence of cross-flow is found to be much higher than that without cross-flow. Also, presence of convex dimples augments heat transfer than a plane surface.
