Turbulent planar channel flow has been computed for uniform wall heating and cooling fluxes strong enough to cause significant property variations using large eddy simulation. Channels with both walls either heated or cooled were considered, with wall-to-bulk temperature ratios as high as 1.5 for the heated case, and as low as 0.56 for the cooled case. An implicit, second order accurate finite volume scheme was used to solve the time dependent filtered set of equations to determine the large eddy motion, while a dynamic subgrid-scale model was used to account for the subgrid scale effects. Step-periodicity was used based on a quasi-developed assumption. The effects of strong heating and cooling on the flow were investigated and compared with the results obtained under low heating conditions.
