In the present work, conjugate heat transfer in a rectangular cavity with a heated moving lid is investigated using the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The simulations are performed for incompressible flow, with Reynolds numbers ranging from 100 to 500, thermal diffusivity ratios ranging from 1 to 100, and Prandtl numbers ranging from 0.7 to 7. A uniform heat flux through the top of the lid is assumed. Results show that LBM is suitable for the study of heat transfer in conjugate problems. Effects of the Reynolds number, the Prandtl number and the thermal diffusivity ratio on hydrodynamic and thermal characteristics are investigated and discussed. The streamlines and temperature distribution in flow field, dimensionless temperature and Nusselt number along the hot wall are illustrated. The results indicate that increase of thermal diffusivity yields the removal of a higher quantity of energy from lid and its temperature decreases when increasing the Reynolds and the Prandtl numbers.
