This paper presents large eddy simulation (LES) results of convective heat transfer and incompressible-fluid flow around a square cylinder (SC) at Reynolds numbers in the range from 10 3 to 3.5 � 10 5 . The LES uses the swirling-strength based sub-grid scale (SbSGS) model. Several flow properties at turbulent regime are explored, including lift and drag coefficients, time-spanwise averaged sub-grid viscosity, and Kolmogorov micro-scale. Local and mean Nusselt numbers of convective heat transfer
