Two-dimensional numerical computations have been performed in order to investigate the development characteristics of flow and thermal field in a flow between parallel plates swept by a visco-elastic fluid. In the present study, the effect of the cavity number in the domain and of Reynolds number was focused on when the geometric parameters were set constant. From the results, it is found that the flow penetration into the cavities effectively causes the heat transfer augmentation in the cavities in any cavity region compared with that of water case. It is also found that the development of thermal field in cases of the present visco-elastic fluid is quicker compared with that of water cases. The present heat transfer augmentation technique using Barus effect of a visco-elastic fluid is effective in the range of low Reynolds number.
