Zero mean oscillatory flow over a heated plate mounted on the bottom wall of a channel, is analysed by solving two dimensional time dependent governing equations using control volume based pressure correction procedure. A uniform sinusoidally varying velocity profile is applied at the inlet, and temperature of the heated plate is kept constant. The numerical solutions are compared with experimental values and the effects of Reynolds and Wormersly numbers on the velocity and temperature profiles are presented for the same Prandtl number, (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
