Chapter 7 External Forced Convection 7-93 Wind is blowing parallel to the walls of a house with windows. The rate of heat loss through the window is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The critical Reynolds number is Re cr = 5 × 10 5 . 3 Radiation effects are negligible. 4 Air flow is turbulent because of the intense vibrations involved. 5 The minivan is modeled as a rectangular box. 6 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 6 The pressure of air is 1 atm. Properties Assuming a film temperature of 5 ° C, the properties of air at 1 atm and this temperature are evaluated to be (Table A-15) 7350 . 0 Pr /s m 10 382 . 1 C W/m. 02401 . 0 2 5 - = × = ° = υ k Analysis Air flows along 1.2 m side. The Reynolds number in this case is [] 6 2 5 10 447 . 1 /s m 10 382 . 1 m) (1.2 m/s ) 3600 / 1000 60 ( Re × = × × = = L V L Air V = 60 km/h T 2 = -2 ° C L = 1.2 m WINDOW T 1 = 22 ° C which is greater than the critical Reynolds number. Thus we have combined laminar and turbulent flow.
