An experimental and analytical study is presented in this paper describing heat transfer in the region of separated flow over a two-dimensional rectangular cavity (of variable depth-width ratios) facing an oncoming turbulent boundary layer of variable thickness. The analysis, based on a prescription of eddy diffusion in the mixing region, predicts a heat transfer correlation, in terms of the foregoing variables, resulting in good agreement with the data. Experiments were performed with conditions of uniform temperature and uniform heat flux at the cavity walls and revealed no substantial difference between the two methods on the final correlation.
