A theoretical study is performed to investigate unsteady, two-dimensional, incompressible thermal-fluid flow over both sides of a slot-perforated flat surface, which is placed in a pulsating channel flow. The roles of both the pulsating Strouhal number and the ratio of the channel width to the plate thickness, W/δ, on the velocity and thermal fields are disclosed. It is found from the study that: (i) when the channel stream is pulsated, the alternating change in the fluid flow disturbs the thermal boundary layer formed along the plate and induces mixing of the upper and lower streams of the plate downstream from the slot, resulting in an amplification of heat transfer performance, and (ii) heat transfer performance at the plate is attenuated with a decrease in W/δ.
