This paper describes the addition of conjugate capability to an existing Navier-Stokes code. Also, results are presented for an internally cooled configuration. The code is currently referred to as the Glenn-HT code, because of its origin at the NASA Glenn Research center and its proven ability to predict flow and Heat Transfer. In the past, the code had been called traf3d.mb. The addition of the conjugate capability to the code was accomplished with a minimum amount of changes to the code, with the understanding that if more advanced techniques were required they could be added at a later date. In the solid region, the density is constant and the velocities are of course zero which leaves only a simplified form of the energy equation to be solved. This simplified energy equation is solved using the same method as in the gas regions with only minor changes to the numerical parameters. At the interface between the gas and solid the wall temperature is set so as to produce the same heat flux in each region. Results are presented for a pipe flow to validate the implementation. Numerical and experimental results are then presented for flow over a flat plate that is cooled internally. Flat plate Reynolds numbers in the range 180,000 to 950,000, and coolant channel Reynolds numbers in the range 30,000 to 60,000 are presented.
