C onvective heat transfer occurs in almost all branches o f engineering and a knowledge o f t he methods used to model convective heat transfer is therefore required b y many practicing engineers. Most conventional introductory courses on heat transfer deal with some aspects o f convective heat transfer but the treatment is usually relatively superficial. For this reason, many engineering schools offer a course dealing with convective heat transfer at the senior undergraduate or graduate level. The purpose o f such courses is to expand and extend the coverage given in the basic course on heat transfer. The present book is intended to provide a clear presentation o f t he material covered in such courses. Completion o f undergraduate courses in basic heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics i s assumed.
C overage The book provides a comprehensive coverage o f the subject giving a full discussion o f forced, natural, and mixed convection including some discussion o f turbulent natural and mixed convection. A comprehensive discussion o f convective heat transfer in porous media flows and o f condensation heat transfer is also provided. The book contains a large number o f worked examples that illustrate the use o f the derived results. All chapters in the book also contain an extensive set o f problems. Convective heat transfer has become a subject o f very wide extent and the se'lection o f material for inclusion in a book o f t he present type requires careful consideration. In this book, heat transfer during boiling and solidification have not been considered. This is not in any way meant to suggest that these topics are o f l esser importance than those included in the book. Rather, it is felt that the student needs a good grounding in the topics covered i n t he present book before approaching the analysis o f h eat transfer with boiling and solidification. The book thus lays the foundation for more advanced courses on specialized aspects o f convective heat transfer.
Approach
T he basic aim o f the book is to p resent a discussion o f some currently available methods for predicting convective heat transfer rates. The main emphasis is, therefore, on the prediction o f h eat transfer rates rather than on the presentation o f l arge amounts o f experimental data. Attention is given to both analytical and numerical methods o f analysis. Another aim o f t he book is to present a thorough discussion o f the foundations o f the subject i n a clear, easy to follow, student-oriented style. Because new methods o f analyzing convection are constantly being introduced, the emphasis in the book is on develQping a thorough understanding o f t he basic equations and o f t he processes involved i n t he analysis o f convective heat transfer, together with developing an understarlding o f the assumptions on which existing
x iii
methods o f analysis are based and on developing a clear understanding o f the limitations o f these methods. Even a t t he graduate level, some students have difficulty dealing with the process o f taking a complex real situation and, b y introducing 11 s eries o f carefully reasoned and documented assumptions, deriving a model o f t he real situation that is amenable to solution. I n this book, emphasis has, therefore, been placed wherever possible on this modeling process. The widespread use o f c omputer software for the analysis o f e ngineering problems has, i n m any ways, increased the need to understand the assumptions and the theory on which such analyses are based. S uch an understanding is required to interpret the computer results and to j udge w hether a particular piece o f software will give results that are o f adequate accuracy for the application being considered. T hhefore, while there is an extensive discussion o f numerical methods i n this book, the major emphasis is on developing an understanding o f the material and o f t he assumptions conventionally used in analyzing convective heat transfer. Compared, to avail&ble textbooks on the subject,. then, the present book is, it is hoped, distinguished o y its attempt to develop a thorough understanding o f the theory and o f the assumptions on which this theory is based and by the breadth o f its coverage.
Solutions Manual
A manual, written by the authors o f this textbook, that contains detailed solutions to .' all o f the problems in the book, is available. Each solution in this manual starts on a separate page thus making it easier to post solutions to individual problems.
Software
A number o f computer programs are discussed in this book. These are all based on relatively simple finite-difference procedures that are developed i n the book. While the numerical methods used are relatively simple, it is believed that i f the students gain a good understanding o f these methods and are exposed to the power o f e ven simple numerical solution procedures, they will have little difficulty in understanding and using more advanced numerical methods. Examples o f t he use o f the computer programs are included in the text. The computer programs described in this book can all be downloaded from the web site o f one o f t he authors (P. H. Oosthuizen) at Queen's University. For more information on these programs and on how they can be obtained, please contact this author via e-mail atoosthuiz@me.queensu.ca.
A CKNOWLEDGMENTS
Thill book has been developed from notes prepared over many years for use in courses on convective heat transfer taught to advanced undergradmlte and graduate students
at Queen's University. The input o f students into a professor's understanding o f a subject cannot b e overemphasized and the material in this book and the way in which it is presented have been greatly influenced by the undergraduate and graduate students that have taken these courses. T he authors wish to express their deep and sincere gratitude to all o f these students. Jane Paul undertook the tedious j ob o f preparing and checking much o f the text and her help and encouragement is gratefully acknowledged. The authors would like to t hank John Lloyd and John D. Anderson for their advice and encouragement during the early stages o f the development o f this book. They would also like to express their gratitude to the following reviewers for their contributions to the development o f this text: A. M. Kanury Oregon State University Afshin J.
