Chapter 7 External Forced Convection 7-65 Combustion air is preheated by hot water in a tube bank. The rate of heat transfer to air and the pressure drop of air are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The surface temperature of the tubes is equal to the temperature of hot water. Properties The exit temperature of air, and thus the mean temperature, is not known. We evaluate the air properties at the assumed mean temperature of 20 ° C (will be checked later) and 1 atm (Table A-15): k = 0.02514 W/m-K ρ = 1.204 kg/m 3 C p =1.007 kJ/kg-K Pr = 0.7309 μ = 1.825 × 10-5 kg/m-s Pr s = Pr @ Ts = 0.7132 Also, the density of air at the inlet temperature of 15 ° C (for use in the mass flow rate calculation at the inlet) is ρ i = 1.225 kg/m 3 . Analysis It is given that D = 0.021 m, S L = S T = 0.05 m, and V = 3.8 m/s. Then the maximum velocity and the Reynolds number based on the maximum velocity become m/s 552 . 6 m/s) 8 . 3 ( 021 .0 05 .0 05
