Convective heat transfer is associated with the nature of the flow near the streamlined solid. Since flow properties vary quickly, it is important to fix their momentary values. We propose a technique for studying heat transfer and air flow based on combined use of gradient heat flux measurement and PIV. The paper presents velocity fields near a pair of circular cylinders and distribution of heat flux per unit area on the surface of the second cylinder. Both cylinders were heated with saturated water steam at atmospheric pressure, thereby keeping temperature of the cylinders constant. The experiments were carried out in the range of Reynolds numbers from 480 to 29800. Differences in vortex structure, dead-air region’s length etc., and heat transfer are revealed depending on the velocity of free stream and the distance between the cylinders. Use of gradient heat flux sensors allows us to estimate pulsations of heat flux at various points of the second cylinder and compare them with the pictures of instantaneous velocity fields. The results are consistent with data from other authors and show the prospects of the proposed methodology.
