Chapter 7 External Forced Convection 7-22 The top surface of the passenger car of a train in motion is absorbing solar radiation. The equilibrium temperature of the top surface is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The critical Reynolds number is Re cr = 5 × 10 5 . 3 Radiation heat exchange with the surroundings is negligible. 4 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. Properties The properties of air at 30 ° C are (Table A-15) 7282 . 0 Pr /s m 10 608 . 1 C W/m. 02588 . 0 2 5 - = × = ° = υ k 200 W/m 2 Air V = 70 km/h T = 30 ° C L Analysis The rate of convection heat transfer from the top surface of the car to the air must be equal to the solar radiation absorbed by the same surface in order to reach steady operation conditions.
