1 CHME 333 Workbook Chapter 7 – External Flows Objective - Calculate local and average convection coefficients for external flow heat and mass transfer applications In Chapter 6 we learned the basics about how heat transfer and mass transfer coefficients are calculated. By understanding the geometry, the flow conditions, and the fluid properties, we can calculate Nu and Sh , and then get values of h and h m . In Chapter 7, we consider External Flow – flow of a fluid that is bound by only one surface; the boundary layer is unconstrained. We will start by considering the simplest of cases – laminar flow over an isothermal flat plate – and develop equations for Nu (and Sh by using the heat/mass transfer analogy). We will then progress to more complicated geometries and flow conditions. The keys to solving problems involving external convection are the following: o Determine flow geometry o Specify appropriate reference temperature, and evaluate the fluid properties at that temperature o In mass transfer, the fluid properties are that of species B (because the mole fraction of species A is often << 1.0. o Calculate Re o Determine if local or average convection coefficients are needed o Select the appropriate correlation

### What students are saying

• 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.
