The problem of turbulent flow and heat transfer in a two-channel plate heat exchanger was numerically investigated, considering its complex geometry as well as inlet and outlet ports effects. Results obtained for the flow and thermal field have clearly shown their asymmetrical behavior, which has important influence on the local heat transfer. Friction factor are found to be in good agreement with theoretical correlation.
