  In this study, investigation on hydrodynamic and forced convection heat transfer in a rectangular horizontal duct have been studied. Heat sources were cross rectangular ribs with small aspect ratio and uniform heat flux under turbulent regime. The purpose of this study is application of a passive method to increase rate of heat transfer from the ribs. Geometry and the physics of the problem are similar to cooling of electronic boards. Therefore three rectangular ribs established along the width of the channel with specified distance from each other. Between ribs some vortexes were appeared which in general were acted as heat traps and thus reduced heat transfer rate. These thermal resistances should be neutralized by applying heat transfer enhancement methods. Due to low pressure of these areas in comparison with their surrounding environment, establishing holes between the ribs is an appropriate method for vanishing the heat traps. Actually by applying holes between the ribs, some distortions in the vortex patterns are made and an enhancement in the heat transfer due to existence of secondary flows, are made subsequently. These phenomena are occurred without any outsource energies. This method classified as passive method. Numerical simulation for assumed geometry is performed by solving governing equations in finite volume with Phoenics software. The obtained simulated results indicate good agreements with experimental investigations which have been reported by other researchers. Comparison between plain and passive cases shows that performance evaluation criteria (PEC) is highly dependant on the holes geometric parameters, specially their numbers and arrangements. Nine different arrangements for holes with same number of holes were studied comprehendly in this research.

  The aim of this study is an application of the EHD actuator on local heat transfer enhancement by using wire-plate electrodes in laminar and turbulent duct flow. In this study, the effects of an electric field and temperature field on the fluid flow as an active method of enhancement is numerically investigated. The hydrodynamics and heat transfer behaviors of laminar and turbulent duct flow with specific boundary conditions in the presence of an EHD actuator was taken into consideration. The partial difference equations of flow field and electric field namely continuity, momentum and energy equations for fluid flow and electric current and Poisson’s equations for electric field was numerically solved with finite volume method. At first, the electric equations were solved and then the results were imported to the fluid field for improvement of the body forces. The obtained results show for the flows with Re≤1000 with single wire-plate electrode is suitable for local enhancement. By adding the number of wires to three, it is possible to use this method for turbulent flow up to Re = 2000.
