In this study a numerical investigation of an impinging jet flow, on a heated moving plate, is presented. The purpose of this study is to numerically investigate the effects of various parameters such as nanoparticle volume fraction, pulsating frequency, plate velocity, Reynolds number on the heat transfer characteristics. Navier-Stokes equations and energy equations are solved with a commercial finite volume based code. It is observed that adding nanoparticles increases the peak value of Nusselt number. It is also observed that the value of Nusselt number at the stagnation point is higher at the low velocities of impingement surface. In the unsteady case, heat transfer enhancement is seen at low frequencies.
