Unformatted text preview: ture, we employ Newton's law of cooling (see F. P. Incropera, D. P. DeWitt,
Fundamentals of Heat Transfer): q′′ = h (Tw,o − Tm,o )
h = convection film coefficient
For laminar, thermally-developed conditions in a circular pipe with a constant heat flux, the Nusselt number is
constant, independent of Re, Pr and axial location. It is known to be: Nu ≡ hD

The outlet wall temperature is then: Tw,o = Tm,o + q′′ A s
h where: h= 4.36 K
D For the thermally-developed region with constant surface heat flux, the temperature profile is of the form as
described in F. P. Incropera, D. P. DeWitt, Fundamentals of Heat Transfer:
2VXm R2 dTm 3
1 r T(r ) = Tw − dx 16 + 16 R − 4 R α where: α= k
ρ Cp Since LE,T dT L, m dx is assumed constant over the entire pipe length, or: dTm (Tm,o − Tm,i )
= 414 K / m
The outlet centerline temperature is then: Tc,o = T(r )r =0 = 341.0 K Resul...
