Direct Numerical Simulation results of three-dimensional laminar separated and reattached flow and heat transfer around a surface-mounted square plate are presented in this paper. Numerical calculations of Navier-Stokes equations and energy one are carried out using the finite difference method with SMAC method. A square plate is presumed to be mounted in a laminar boundary layer developing on a flat surface and to be heated under a constant heat flux. Numerical calculations are made on two boundary layer thicknesses at the plate, and the Reynolds number is varied from 300 to 1000. Details of the separated and reattached flow and the thermal field therein are clarified.
