The enhanced heat transfer in the oscillatory flow of liquid metals between two thermally insulated infinite parallel plates, when a constant axial temperature gradient superimposed, is investigated. The fluid is set to oscillation by oscillating both the plates axially along with an axial oscillatory body force, having the same frequency as that of the plates. The effective average thermal diffusivity is calculated and the effect of oscillation of the plates and the oscillatory body force on the enhancement of heat transfer are discussed and compared.
