An experimental study was performed to investigate the heat transfer characteristics of the pulsation flow through a rectangular air duct with aspect ratio of 10. The test section was designed to have a constant heat flux. For pulsating flows, the surface temperatures, the temperature of air at the inlet and at the outlet of the test section, maximum velocity and minimum velocity of air in the test section and the frequencies of pulsation flow were measured and averaged local Nusselt numbers and averaged Nusselt numbers were calculated. The effect of pulsation amplitudes and pulsation frequencies on heat transfer were analyzed.
