The shear stress and heat transfer of moving liquid slugs between two parallel plates are studied numerically. The problem is solved initially as a steady state problem for the velocity field and shear stress, and then, the thermal problem is solved. The thermal boundary condition is constant wall temperature. The fluid properties are assumed to be constant. The finite volume method is applied using the ANSYS Fluent software package. The results show good agreement with the published literature. Effects of different interface shapes (contact angles) on wall shear stress and heat transfer is discussed. Dimensionless heat transfer plots are also presented.
