Experimental measurements were obtained to characterize the thermal performance of ducted air suction in conjunction with a pin-fin heat sink. Four single nozzles of different diameters and two multiple-nozzle arrays were studied at a fixed nozzle-to-target distance, for different turbulent Reynolds numbers ~ 5000
