This paper discusses the influences of the turbulence model selection on the heat transfer prediction in the conjugate simulation of flow and heat conduction. It is known that the heat transfer prediction by the flow simulation based on RANS is dependent upon the turbulence model. Common difficulties are the anomalous production of turbulent kinetic energy in a flow with large rates of strain and the laminar-turbulent transition, both of which are persistent aspects in typical turbine cascade flow. Similar and possibly greater impact is expected when these turbulence models are applied to the conjugate simulation of flow and heat conduction. An anomaly treatment called a time-scale bound is applied to the low Reynolds number k-ω and the SST turbulence models installed in the common CFD platform UPACS. The turbulence model dependencies on the conjugate simulation of flow and heat conduction are investigated in an axisymmetric turbulent jet impingement and the 2D turbine cascade vanes.
