Fluid flow and heat transfer prediction were conducted to study the three dimensional turbulent flow and heat transfer in rotating tapered inclined channel. Channel orientation is 135° from the rotation direction. Three rotation numbers Ro = 0, 0.1, 0.2 & 0.4 and two inlet coolant-to-wall density ratios 0.1 and 0.40 were investigated, respectively, while keeping Reynolds number constant at 10000. The normalized velocity and temperature fields are presented at two axial locations. The local normalized Nusselt number and spanwise averaged Nusselt number values were reported for three walls; leading, trailing, and top walls. The results show considerable span-wise local Nusselt number variation across the leading, trailing and top walls as the rotation number and density ratio increases.
