Abstract

A numerical scheme is described which simulates the flow of energy and momentum in a high Reynolds number, medium Peclet number fluid flow over an isothermally heated flat semi-infinite plate with rectangular leading edge. The velocity field is predicted by a discrete-vortex model. The instantaneous thermal field is simultaneously calculated using a non-conservative finite-difference approximation of the energy equation. The heating and cooling of a passive tracer particle demonstrates the action of the vortices in augmenting the heat transfer rate at the plate surface.
