SCHEMATIC: ANALYSIS: The average value of h x between 0 and x is x x1/2 x x 1/21/2 x x x 1 C h h dx x dx x x C h 2 x 2 C x x h 2 h . = = = = = Hence, x x h 2. h = < COMMENTS: Both the local and average coefficients decrease with increasing distance x from the leading edge, as shown in the sketch below. PROBLEM 6.2 KNOWN: Variation of local convection coefficient with x for free convection from a vertical heated plate. FIND: Ratio of average to local convection coefficient. SCHEMATIC: ANALYSIS: The average coefficient from 0 to x is x x1/4 x x 3/41/4 x x 1 C h h dx x dx x x 4 C 4 4 h x C x h . 3 x 3 3 = = = = = Hence, x x h 4 . h 3 = < The variations with distance of the local and average convection coefficients are shown in the sketch. COMMENTS: Note that h / h 4 / 3 x x = is independent of x. Hence the average coefficient for an entire plate of length L is L L 4 h h 3 = , where h L is the local coefficient at x = L. Note also that the average exceeds the local. Why? PROBLEM 6.3 KNOWN: Expression for the local heat transfer coefficient of a circular, hot gas jet at T directed normal to a circular plate at T s of radius r o . FIND: Heat transfer rate to the plate by convection. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steadystate conditions, (2) Flow is axisymmetric about the plate, (3) For h(r), a and b are constants and n 2. ANALYSIS: The convective heat transfer rate to the plate follows from Newtons law of cooling ( ) ( ) A A conv conv s q d q h r d A T T . = = The local heat transfer coefficient is known to have the form, ( ) n h r a br = + and the differential area on the plate surface is dA 2 r dr. = Hence, the heat rate is ( ) ( ) ( ) r o o n conv s r 2 n + 2 conv s q a br 2 r dr T T a b q 2 T T r r 2 n 2 = + = + + ( ) 2 n + 2 conv o o s a b q 2 r r T T . 2 n 2 = + + < COMMENTS: Note the importance of the requirement, n 2. Typically, the radius of the jet is much smaller than that of the plate. PROBLEM 6.4 KNOWN: Distribution of local convection coefficient for obstructed parallel flow over a flat plate.
