Abstract : Inquiry is made into a fundamental aspect of heat transfer in a laminar flow where separation has induced a reverse or backward moving layer of fluid. A Couette flow model is chosen with linear velocity profile but with a portion of the profile reversed. In this model, the features of simultaneous upstream and downstream convection are retained. Analytical solutions are found for the case of a sinusoidal wall temperature. It is concluded that the convection effect of the reverse layer cannot be ignored in practical cases. (Author)
