Two conjugate convection boundary layers of counter forced flow

In this study, the conjugate heat transfer problem of two laminar forced convection boundary layers of counter flow on the opposite sides of a conductive wall is analyzed by employing the integral method. The analysis is conducted in a dimensionless framework to generalize the solution. The dimensionless parameters affecting the thermal interaction between the two convection layers are deduced from the analysis. These parameters give a measure of the relative importance of interactive heat transfer modes. Mean Nusselt number data are obtained for a wide range of the main affecting parameters.
