A framework for the simulations of conjugate heat transfer (CHT) problems using discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods on unstructured grids is presented. The compressible fluid dynamic equations and solid heat conduction equations are discretized into the explicit DG formulations simultaneously. The Bassi-Rebay method is used in the gradients computation inside both fluid and solid domains. Fully coupled strategy based on the data exchange process via the numerical flux of interface quadrature points is devised. Various turbulence models and the local-variable-based transition model γ -Reθ are assimilated into the unified algorithm framework. The feasibility of the methodology is validated by some test cases. The work can be viewed as a primary attempt towards further investigations of DG and other high-accuracy methods applications in the engineering CHT problems.
