Description
CONVECTION HEAT TRANSFER
To provide the student with an understanding of the transport of mass and heat in fluid systems, including free and forced convection for internal and external laminar and turbulent flow. Conservation equations for mass, momentum and energy will be developed. The development of the hydraulic and thermal boundary layer will be presented for laminar and turbulent flows, leading into film cooling, condensation, evaporation and boiling phenomena. Correlations for heat transfer characteristics for turbulent flows will be presented as a departure point from analytic solutions of laminar flows. Numerical methods for convection will be presented in the form of finite differencing schemes.
