This work presents a comparison of the results from an experimental and numerical investigation of impinging swirling jets operating at Reynolds number and swirl number equal to 30'000 and 0.61, respectively. Measurements are carried out via InfraRed Thermography using a heated thin foil as heat flux sensor, varying the impingement distance from 1 to 10 nozzle diameters. Numerical simulations of the same configurations are performed with a commercial software (Ansys Fluent) to test the
