Laminar fully developed periodic heat transfer and fluid flow characteristics in corrugated two‐dimensional ducts with constant cross‐sectional area are numerically investigated. The governing equations are solved numerically by a finite‐volume method for elliptic flows in complex geometries using colocated variables and Cartesian velocity components. The results were obtained for a uniform wall temperature for two inclination angles and three duct aspect ratios (H/L) and for Reynolds number ranging from 30 to 1200. The plot of the velocity vectors show a complex flow pattern. Unexpected high enhancement of the average Nusselt number was observed at low Reynolds number for H/L = ½ and ⅓. A moderate increase in Nusselt number was obtained as Reynolds number was increased further.
