Convective Heat Transfer Two main classifications of convective heat transfer These have to do with the driving force causing fluid to flow
Natural or free convection Fluid motion results from heat transfer Fluid heated/ cooled -> density change/ buoyancy effect -> natural circulation in which affected fluid moves of its own accord past the solid surface
- fluid it replaces is similarly affected by the energy transfer process is repeated Forced convection Fluid circulation is produced by external agency (fan or pump) Analytical Methods

Significant Parameters In Convective Heat Transfer A. Both have same dimensions L2/t; thus their ratio must be dimensionless
B. This ratio, that of molecular diffusivity of momentum to the molecular diffusivity of heat, is designed the Prandtl number Pr

Exact Analysis of the Laminar Boundary Layer A logical consequence of this situation is that the hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layers are of equal thickness.
It is significant that the Prandtl numbers for most gases are sufficiently closed to unity that the hydrodynamic and thermal boundaries are of similar extent. See detailed derivation below

(19-19) Approximate Integral Analysis of
the Thermal Boundary Layer An approximate method for analysis of the thermal boundary layer employs the integral analysis used by von Krmn for the hydrodynamic boundary layer.
Consider the control volume designated by the dashed lines, applying to flow parallel to a flat surface with no pressure gradient, having width x, a height equal to the thickness of the thermal boundary layer

er Example 1 o Water at 50 F enters a heat-exchanger tube having an inside diameter of 1 in and a length of 10 ft. The water
o flows at 20 gal/min. For a constant wall temperature of 210 F estimate the =(90+210)/2 = 150
Film temperature = (water mean bulk temperature + pipe wall temperature)/2 = (50+130)/2 o
Second iteration is required since if |TL 130| > 3 F?
