4.5. FORCED CONVECTION HEAT TRANSFER INSIDE PIPES

4.5A. Introduction and Dimensionless Numbers

In most situations involving a liquid or a gas in heat transfer, convective heat transfer usually occurs as well as conduction. In most industrial processes where heat transfer is occurring, heat is being transferred from one fluid through a solid wall to a second fluid. In Fig. 4.5-1 heat is being transferred from the hot flowing fluid to the cold flowing fluid. The temperature profile is shown.

The velocity gradient, when the fluid is in turbulent flow, is very ...
