Two-dimensional steady flow and convective heat transfer of power-law fluids past a semicircular cylinder are investigated in the reported work. The heated semicircular cylinder is placed in an unconfined domain at different angles facing the incoming free-stream flow of power-law fluids having a generalized Prandtl number (Pr) = 100. Particular emphasis is given to studying the effect of angle of incidence (0 ≤ α ≤ 180°) on fluid dynamics and thermal transport around the semicircular object for varying Reynolds number (10 ≤ Re ≤ 40) and power-law index (0.4 ≤ n ≤ 1.8). A finite volume-based method is adopted for the numerical computation. The flow and heat transfer phenomena are visualized through the streamline and isotherm profiles at various operating conditions. Also, the pressure coefficient, drag coefficient, and Nusselt number on the surface of the object are presented and discussed.
