The present paper investigated the correlation between acoustic pressure and heat transfer augmentation in acoustic fields. The acoustic pressure predicted by numerical work and compared with the augmentation ratio of heat transfer coefficient was experimentally measured. Also, particle image velocimetry(PIV) was used for the visualization of velocity vectors and kinetic energy distribution inside liquid region. For the numerical work, SVS programed with Fortran language and based on a coupled FE-BEM was used. Results of the present study, the acoustic pressure is increased by $60\%$ and the largest augmentation of heat transfer about $28\%$ was measured. Finally, the profiles of acoustic pressure is consistent with that of augmentation of heat transfer. It is concluded that a correlation exists between the acoustic pressure and the heat transfer augmentation.
