Numerical modelling of a conjugate convective-conduction heat transfer in a rectangular region with a heat-release source was carried out in the presence of forced flow and mass exchange. The distributions of thermal and hydrodynamic characteristics, which describe the specific peculiarities of flow regimes under study, were obtained. The mutual influence of forced and free-convective flow was analysed. The scales of the effect of determining dimensionless complexes (Gr, Br, Re) on flow regimes were established. The evolution of analysed process was shown.
