1 BKF2423 HEAT TRANSFER CHAPTER 3 Principles of steady-state heat transfer in convection CO1 - Solve heat transfer problems that involve conduction, convection and radiation in steady state heat transfer PO1 Engineering Knowledge - Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems. PO2 Problem Analysis - Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences. CONTENT Define and differentiate between forced convection , natural convection, boiling and condensation. Calculate the heat transfer coefficient (h) & heat transfer rate (q) for Forced convection inside pipe Fluid flow inside pipe Forced convection outside various geometries Fluid flow across flat plate Fluid flow across tube/cylinder Fluid flow across sphere Fluid flow across bank of tubes/cylinders Natural convection Fluid flow across flat plate Fluid flow across cylinder Fluid flow in enclosed spaces Boiling Nucleate boiling Film boiling Condensation Film condensation The rate of heat transfer : T w = 80 o C T f = 30 o C q ) ( f w T T hA q The heat transfer coefficient is a measure of how effective a fluid is at carrying heat to or away from the surface. h = heat transfer coefficient (W/m 2 .K) A= surface area (m 2 ) Fluid flow Convection: Heat transfer using movement of fluids

2 Determination of heat transfer coefficient The determination of heat transfer coefficient is affected by the: physical properties of fluid type and velocity of flow temperature difference geometry of the specific physical system Dimensionless numbers (Reynolds, Prandalt, Nusselt numbers) are used to correlate the data for heat transfer coefficient. 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
