Heat Convection
Mathematical Modeling :
The rate of heat convection over a medium depends on the:

Nature of the flow (Re.Laminar or Turbulent)


Nature of the fluid (Viscosity, k, density, C, etc) Surface Area of the medium Temperature Difference

Unlike conduction, convection is not concerned with medium properties

Nusselt Number

Consider a fluid layer of thickness L, and temperature difference is T = T2 T1. Heat transfer through the fluid will be by convection if the fluid is in motion or by conduction if it is in rest.

Nu

Nu represent the enhancement of Heat transfer by convection through the fluid as compare to conduction. High value means more effective the convection; Nu=1, means pure conduction

Prandtl Number

Velocity Profile

The region above the plate where viscous effect are dominant; known as velocity boundary layer; and boundary layer thickness () is defined as y distance where u=0.99u
Temperature Profile

Similarly the region in temperature profile know as the thermal boundary layer; and boundary layer thickness ( t) is defined as y distance where T Ts = 0.99(T-Ts)

Heat Convection

Prandtl Number
In flow over a heated surface, both thermal and velocity boundary

layers develop simultaneously; Velocity profile have a strong effect on temperature profile; and finally on thermal boundary layer. Convective heat transfer coefficient is directly dependent on this temperature gradient; The relative thickness of these thermal and velocity boundary layer is describe by Prandtl number;

EXAMPLE 75

A long 10-cm-diameter steam pipe whose external surface temperature is 110 C passes through some open area that is not protected against the winds. Determine the rate of heat loss from the pipe per unit of its length when the air is at 1 atm pressure and 10 C and the wind is blowing across the pipe at a velocity of 8 m/s.
