Results of a numerical study of the flow structure and turbulent heat transfer in a round tube with a mounted single diaphragm with height h and some clearance c between the tube and the diaphragm. The size of the clearance between the diaphragm and the tube wall was varied within range A = c/h = 0 – 0.33. It was determined that an increase in the gap between the diaphragm and the tube wall alters the structure of the recirculation region and eliminate the stagnation zones in the region of secondary vortex. The flow regime, when the values of average heat transfer behind the diaphragm in the presence of a clearance exceed those for the attached rib, was distinguished. When increasing the gap height from A = 0 to 0.33, the thermal enhancement factor increases by 30%.
