Abstract

The heat transfer characteristics of the flow around rectangular cylinders having various aspect ratios with uniform injection or suction through the rear, top, bottom, and all surfaces have been studied numerically. The effects of injection or suction on heat transfer have been linked to the analysis via wall functions of the velocity and temperature sublayers. The computational code employed in the present study was verified with a typical benchmark problem of the flow around a square cylinder. The results show that the heat transfer between the main flow and rectangular cylinders is substantially influenced by injection or suction-that is, suction enhances the heat transfer, while injection through the rear surface provides some thermal protection.
