Convection
Convection is the mode of heat transfer due to the bulky motion of the medium. Forced Convection: Here the motion of the medium is governed by some external agent , as Blower or Forced Convection takes place due to the internal flow Fan. & External flow of the medium Heat transfer rate q = hA( Ts - T ) W [ Newtons cooling law ] h=heat transfer coefficient (W /m2K) (h is not a property. It depends on geometry ,nature of flow, thermodynamics properties etc.)

Convection rate equation

Main purpose of convective heat transfer analysis is to determine:


q=heat flux = h(Ts - T) q = -k(T/ y)y=0 Hence, h = [-k(T/ y)y=0] / (Ts T)

flow field temperature field in fluid heat transfer coefficient, h

The expression shows that in order to determine h, we must first determine the temperature distribution in the thin fluid layer that coats the wall.

Forced convection: Non-dimensional groupings

Nusselt No. Nu = hx / k = (convection heat transfer strength)/ (conduction heat transfer strength) Prandtl No. Pr = / = (momentum diffusivity)/ (thermal diffusivity) Reynolds No. Re = U x / = (inertia force)/(viscous force)

Viscous force provides the dampening effect for disturbances in the fluid. If dampening is strong enough laminar flow Otherwise, instability turbulent flow critical Reynolds number

Step:1

:For Experimental Nu & h:

Calculatio n

Where d1= diameter of the delivery pipe A1= Cross sectional area of the pipe =1.25610-3 M2 where d2= diameter of the orifice & A2=area of the orifice =3.1410-4 M2
Surface area of the testing pipe = dl = 0.02355 M2 Where d= diameter of the pipe. l= length of the test pipe

Step: 2

=8.611610-3 M3/s

= Volume flow rate of the air through the pipe = co-efficient of discharge of the orifice = cross sectional area of the pipe =area of the orifice

g =gravitational acceleration
=density of the water used in manometer at ambient temperature

=density of the test fluid(air) at ambient temperature

Ste p:3
=9.571610-3 Kg/s
= density of the air at ambient temperature = mass flow rate or the test fluid (air) in the pipe =volume flow rate of the test fluid (air) in the pipe

Step :4
=37.6095 W

c p

= rate of heat transfer through the test part of the pipe = specific heat of the air at constant pressure at film temperature = Avg. temp of the air = mean temperature of the air at the inlet of the test section = mean temperature of the air at the outlet of the test section = mass flow rate of the air through the test part of the pipe

Where

T f =(Tin + Tout )/2

Step :5
=727.446 W/m2 k
=heat transfer rate through the test part of the pipe = surface area of the test section = average mean temperature of the air in the test part = average surface temperature of the pipe in the test part =Experimental heat transfer co-efficient of the test fluid (air)

Ste p:6
=666.1 6

=Experimental Nusselt Number =Experimental Heat transfer co-efficient = Diameter of the test part of the pipe =Thermal conductivity of the air at film temperature

Ste p:7

Calculation of Theoretical Nu & h

=17.552 m/s
Where V=Velocity of the air through the pipe =Volume flow rate of the air = Cross sectional area of the test section

Step :8

=25.30610 3

= Reynolds Number of the air flow = density of the air at film temperature =diameter of the test section =co-efficient of viscosity of the air at film temperature = velocity of the air through the pipe

Ste p:9 From Dittus-Boelter Equation:


=637.2 0
Where the range of validity: 0.7Pr160; Re10,000 ; L/D10 =Theoretical value of the Nusselt Number = Reynolds number of the air in the pipe = Prandtl Number of the air at film temp

Step :10
=(Nuth.Ka)/ D
= theoretical heat transfer co-efficient = theoretical Nusselt Number = thermal conductivity of the air at film temperature =Diameter or the test section

There after we have to plot a graph in log-log paper

We get the value of m & c from the graph

The Experimental Correlation:

The Theoretical Correlation:

Application: 1. Among many ways to dissipate heat in electronic components, forced convection cooling is the most effective. 2. Forced convection is used in cooling towers in Power Plants & in other industries ( Forced Draft Fan. ) 3. It is also applicable for drying purpose(ie, in washing machine). 4. Forced convection can also be used for heating purpose etc.
