A steady-state two dimensional numerical simulation was carried out to optimize the heat transfer rate density from cylinders under different conditions. The geometric design of the cylinders was varied in two ways. In the first case the cylinders are located on a plane where their leading edges are aligned, and in the second case the cylinders are aligned on a plane which passes through their respective centre-lines. The rotation of the cylinders is within the range of 0 ≤ ω̃ ≤ 1, and the dimensionless pressure drop number, Be, which drives the flow is in the range of 10 ≤ Be ≤ 104 . The continuity, momentum and energy equations describing the flow of the coolant, across the cylinders in the computational domain are performed using a computational fluid dynamics code, the results obtained were validated by comparing it with past results in the open literature for stationary cylinders. The effects of the various parameters (dimensionless pressure drop number, rotation) on the maximum heat transfer rate density from the cylinders in terms of augmentation and the suppression were analysed and reported.
