In the case of conjugate heat transfer, the dissipation rate associated with the temperature variance is discontinuous at the fluid-solid interface. The discontinuity satisfies a compatibility condition involving the fluid-solid thermal diffusivity and conductivity ratios and the relative contribution to the dissipation rate of its wall-normal part. The present analysis is supported by the Direct Numerical Simulations of an incompressible channel flow at a Reynolds number, based on the friction velocity, of 150, a Prandtl number of 0.71 and several values of fluid-solid thermal diffusivity and conductivity ratios.
One dataset (diric) corresponds to an imposed temperature at the fluid boundary.
One dataset (neuma) corresponds to an imposed heat flux at the fluid boundary.
The 9 other datasets correspond to fluid-solid thermal coupling with various thermal diffusivity (G) and thermal conductivity (G2) ratios.
