In the present study a tandem cylinder setup is simulated by means of embedded DNS. The influence of wake turbulence on the heat transfer in the stagnation region of the rear cylinder is investigated. The oncoming flow is varied by increasing the distance between the two cylinders, causing a change of the turbulent wake characteristics and the heat transfer. The data of both simulations show good agreement with an existing experimental correlation in the literature. For the small wake generator distance, a clear shift of the maximum heat transfer is observed away from the stagnation line. This shift is less pronounced for the larger distance.
