this article comparative CFD analysis between a wavy channel and straight channel has been presented. For this purpose a two dimensional model of straight and wavy has been developed by using ANSYS geometrical module. The flow analysis has carried out in ANSYS Fluent where the governing equations have been solved by ANSYS Fluent module. The hydrodynamic characteristics of both wavy and straight channel have been examined and the purpose of using wavy channel in industrial application has been discussed in detailed. The obtained finite volume results have been validated with the result of published data and the results show good convergence. During comparison of hydrodynamic characteristic’s wide range of Reynolds number has been considered i.e. from laminar to highly turbulent.
