### ANALYTICAL SOLUTION OF CONJUGATE TURBULENT FORCED CONVECTION BOUNDARY LAYER FLOW OVER PLATES

**ABSTRACT**

A conjugate (coupled) forced convection heat transfer from a heated conducting plate under turbulent boundary layer flow is considered. A heated plate of finite thickness is cooled under turbulent forced convection boundary layer flow. Because the conduction and convection boundary layer flow is coupled (conjugated) in the problem, a semi-analytical solution based on Differential Transform Method (DTM) is presented for solving the non-linear integro-differential equation occurring in the problem. The main conclusion is that in the conjugate heat transfer case the temperature distribution of the plate is flatter than the one in the non-conjugate case. This feature is more pronounced under turbulent flow when compared with the laminar flow.
