The study of heat transfer by forced convection in annular passages is of interest across the range of process and aeronautical industries, for example from annular heat exchangers to the various configurations of annuli found in turbomachinery. The aim of this paper is to review relevant experimental, numerical and analytical research of heat transfer in both stationary and rotating annuli, with an emphasis on presenting useful information for designers. The geometries considered are the stationary annulas with superposed axial throughflow and the rotating annulus with rotation of either the inner or outer cylinder (both with and without throughflow). The work presented covers laminar and turbulent flows as well as flow regimes where transition occurs or vortex flows are present.
