ABSTRACT
In this paper a numerical investigation has been carried out to define average Nusselt number on a convex heated curved surface entry of an adiabatic channel. For channels with a convex heated surface, where the increase in flow cross sectional area decelerates the flow (adverse pressure gradient) while buoyancy accelerates the flow, separation is observed near the heated surface. The effects of Reynolds number, Grashof number, and separation on average Nusselt number is discussed for a fixed value of R/L.
