Abstract: In the present paper, a conjugate forced convection heat transfer from a good conducting plate is studied. The flow is assumed turbulent. The semi-analytical solution for the non-linear integro-differential equation occurring in the problem is handled easily and accurately by implementing Differential Transform Method (DTM).The horizontal plate is heated with uniform heat flux at the lower surface while being cooled at the upper surface under turbulent forced convection flow. The main conclusion is that in the conjugate heat transfer case the temperature distribution of the plate is flatter than the one in the non-conjugate case. This feature is more pronounced under turbulent flow when compared with the laminar flow.
