The turbulent flow fields of a parallel plate or channel with spatially periodic condition have been widely investigated by many researchers. However the rectangular or square curved duct flow has not been fundamentally scrutinized in spite of its engineering significance, especially for cooling device. Hence, in the present study large eddy simulation is applied to the turbulent flow and heat transfer in a rectangular duct with 180° curved angle varying its aspect ratio. The turbulent flow and the thermal fields are calculated and the representative vortical motions generated by the secondary flow are investigated. From the results, the secondary flow has a great effect on the heat and momentum transport in the flow. With changing the aspect ratio, the effect of the geometrical variation to the secondary flow and its influence on the turbulent characteristics of the flow and heat transfer are studied.
