Abstract: The central stimuli of this brief note is to underscore the effect of the temperature dependent convection coefficient that give rise to a dual temperature regime facilitating dual entropy distribution. In order to avoid unwarranted complexities, a simple geometry of shear flow in a channel is considered. The energy equation amenable to an analytic solution is simulated to extract the desired numerical findings in as much as for what parameters’ values, the temperature has dual distribution /does not yield temperature distribution at all. In fact, a range of parameter values have been worked out for which dual temperature regime exists or not. The plots of entropy generation number Ns also show the dual regime. The findings reveal a qualitative and quantitative difference in dual systems of temperature and entropy. It further underlines that the thermal systems with the idealized uniform heat transfer coefficient may be far distinct from actual behaviour and even weak temperature dependence of convection coefficient need due attention while designing a system.
