Heat and mass transfer in the separated, reattached, and redeveloping regions of incompressible or compressible flow is very important in relation to many types of heat exchangers. There have been numerous works published describing these flows for a wide variety of geometric configurations, In the present article, a survey is made of published studies of heat transfer in the separated, reattached, and redeveloping regions of incompressible flow around or in a wide variety of flow configurations. Flow configurations cited in the article are the downward facing step, the sudden expansion plane channel, the abrupt expansion tube, the blunt flat plate, the longitudinal blunt circular cylinder, and the surface mounted obstacle. The laminar and turbulent flow cases using both experimental and numerical methodologies are reviewed. This review article includes 268 references.
