this study, the numerical analysis of conjugate heat transfer of laminar flow in a functionally graded hollow cylinder (FGHC) made of metal/ceramic for a two‐dimensional fluid and wall conduction subject to Newton boundary condition is considered. The fluid and FGHC energy equations are coupled through the continuity of temperature and heat flux at the inner wall‐fluid interface while the outer surface is subject to convective heat transfer. The continuity, momentum, and energy equations of the fluid are discretized using the finite volume approach. The effects of fluid and functionally graded material parameters, such as volume fraction index, volume composition, time history, wall‐to‐fluid thermal diffusivity ratio, wall‐to‐fluid thermal conductivity ratio, Biot number, Peclet number, and Prandtl number are investigated on the temperature field in the FGHC. The result shows that on account of the inhomogeneity of the material property, the volume fraction index has a significant effect on the other parameters and the temperature variation along the thickness. The lower the volume fraction index, the higher the inner wall (metal side) temperature, and the temperature gradient along the thickness. However, except for the variation in the wall‐to‐fluid thermal conductivity ratio, the lower the volumetric fraction, the lower the outer wall (ceramic side) temperature distribution.
