### Study of an inclined interface of contact using lattice Boltzmann method

**ABSTRACT**

The lattice Boltzmann method and the particle image model are adopted to study a heat transfer problem with thermal contact resistance. In this paper, a new study involving an inclined interface of contact between two media is introduced in order to evaluate a two-dimensional heat transfer in the steady regime. A case of study and numerical results are provided to support this configuration. The obtained results show the effect of the thermal contact resistance on the heat transfer, as well as the temperature distribution on the two contacting media.
