Numerical simulations of the flow field and heat transfer require the conjugate solution of the Navier-Stokes and energy equations, a highly compute-intensive process. Here a semi-analytical approach is proposed to solve the energy equation in curved pipes. It requires the flow velocity field, the wall temperature, and the temperature at only one point of the flow cross-section to provide the entire temperature field.
