The study provides an insight of thermal transport in various complex solid domains. A Numerical code has been developed for the visualization of isotherms and heatlines in these geometries. Initially grid has been developed in meshing software and later the generated grid has been imported to an in-house developed solver. The integrated form of the governing equations has been discritised using a collocated grid based finite volume method. The present numerical scheme is rigorously validated for temperature distribution with commercial CFD code Ansys - Fluent. Later it is extended to the Bejan's heatline visualization for the considered geometries. The numerical results are presented in terms of isotherms and heatlines. The contours thus obtained are used to analyze the thermal transport in considered complex geometries.
