In the present study, numerical studies are carried out to investigate the heat transfer in rectangular duct roughened by square and trapezoidal shaped ribs on one wall using different fluids. The coolant fluids such as air, steam, air/mist and steam/mist were investigated. The computational results show that the shear stress transport (SST) turbulence model is selected by comparing the predictions of different turbulence models with experimental results. The heat transfer coefficients enhance in ribbed channel at injection small amount of mist. The heat transfer coefficients of air/mist, steam/mist increase by 14% and 104% than that of air, respectively in square shaped ribs. However the heat transfer coefficient of air, air/mist, steam and steam/mist increase by 9%, 16%, 68% and 118%, respectively for trapezoidal shaped ribs compared with air in square shaped ribs.
