Iterative calculation of the heat transfer coefficient

D.Roncati

Progettazione Ottica Roncati, via Panfilio, 17 44121 Ferrara

Aim

The plate temperature of a cooling heat sink is an important parameter that has to be determined with

accuracy. The estimated value depends on its geometrical shape, on the total amount of energy to be

dispersed, and on the air flow. The heat transfer coefficient, h, is the most difficult parameter to be settled.

In this report it is shown a fast and easy iterative method to calculate the h value and later, the

temperature of cooling for heat sink.

Introduction

The heat transfer coefficient or convective coefficient (h), is used in thermodynamics to calculate the heat

transfer typically occurring by convection. simple way to calculate h is to define it through the classical

formula for convection, and compare it with a different definition of h, through dimensionless parameters.

!nfortunately, even if defined by means of different parameters, both the environment and the heat sink

temperature are important to estimate h. n iterative method is then re"uired, by setting an initial value

of the Tp.

Iterative method

n initial guess value for Tp is set in J". : to determine 6r. Knce calculated the dimensionless parameters

6r, -r, 7a and /u,the value of h is obtained through the J". 1. Hy introducing the value of h in J". $, a new

value of Tp is given by#

I

p

u

+

hS

(F)

and the obtained Tp can be used to estimate iteratively the proper value of 6r for the particular

e>perimental setGup by using it in the J". :. The obtained value of h is then used again to estimate the 6r

parameters, in an iterative way, that rapidly converges to the correct estimation of h.

product developed by -rogettazione Kttica 7oncati and -aolo @olombani 4esign, see .igure :). The results

of the iterative method were compare with both the thermal simulation (performed with the finite

Conclusions.

Iterative method and thermal analysis done with finite element software 0I, given values that match with

difference of B.$P with a heat sink 14 model precision of :P. The difference of B.; ?@ (*.<P) with the

laboratory run can be e>plained in terms of uncertainty in the determination of &. Indeed, the heat power

0J4 generated is calculated as difference between power absorption and radiant power. The latter is

estimated from comple> computation.

The iterative method can be used to evaluate accurately the temperature value for heat sink or to define

with better precision the heat transfer convection coefficient for finite elements software for thermal

analysis like 0I,. It is worth noting that the /usselt formula tabulated are for rectangular plate and natural

air flow (free convection) and is not valid for other cases like for heat sink with different shape or for forced

convection.
