Direct numerical simulations (DNS) of a drag-reducing viscoelastic turbulent channel flow with heat transfer had been carried out for three kinds of rheologically different fluids (e.g., different values of Weissenberg number). The molecular Prandtl number was set to be 0.1–2.0. A uniform heat-flux condition was employed as the thermal boundary condition. In this paper, we present various statistical turbulence quantities including the mean and fluctuating temperatures, the Nusselt number (Nu), and the cross-correlation coefficients and discuss about their dependence on the rheological parameters and the Prandtl-number dependency of the obtained drag-reduction rate and heat-transfer reduction rate.
