Jet and spray cooling are found in numerous applications from computer temperature maintenance to waste water treatment. Here the use of the computational fluid dynamics modeling software: FLUENT, is used to analyze the cooling of a hot plate by a fluid jet. By creating geometries in GAMBIT (a meshing program) and then importing them into FLUENT, various fluid flow situations were modeled and analyzed, yielding numerous conclusions on the accuracy and benefits of using FLUENT.
