The possibility of improving the heat transfer is investigated numerically using finite volume method. The Reynolds number increase has a minor effect on flow structure but generates a systematic rise of Nusselt Number. The maximum heat exchange occurs when the cavity bottom is located at the potential core end. The main heat exchange occurs on the cavity bottom for every case. The stagnation Nusselt number is correlated according some problem parameters.
