## Internal Forced Convection

Introduction
• Pipe ─ circular cross section.
• Duct ─ noncircular cross section.
• Tubes ─ small-diameter pipes.
• The fluid velocity changes from zero at the surface
(no-slip) to a maximum at the pipe center.
• It is convenient to work with an
average velocity, which remains
constant in incompressible flow
when the cross-sectional area
is constant.

Average Velocity

## • The value of the average velocity is determined from

the conservation of mass principle

Average Temperature

## • It is convenient to define the value of the mean

temperature Tm from the conservation of
energy principle.
• The energy transported by the fluid through a
cross section in actual flow must be equal to
the energy that would be transported through
the same cross section if the fluid were at a
constant temperature Tm

## • The mean temperature Tm of a fluid changes during

heating or cooling.

Idealized Actual

## Note that the mean temperature Tm of a fluid changes during

heating or cooling.
Also, the fluid properties in internal flow are usually evaluated
at the bulk mean fluid temperature, which is the arithmetic
average of the mean temperatures at the inlet and the exit.
That is, Tb = (Tm, i + Tm, e)/2.

## Laminar and Turbulent Flow in

Tubes
• For flow in a circular tube, the Reynolds number is
defined as
ρVavg D Vavg D (5)
Re = =
µ ν
• For flow through noncircular tubes D is replaced by
the hydraulic diameter Dh.
4A
Dh = c (6)
P
• laminar flow: Re<2300
• fully turbulent: Re>10,000.

## The Entrance Region

• Consider a fluid entering a circular pipe at a uniform
velocity.
• Because of the no-slip condition a velocity gradient
develops along the pipe.
• The flow in a pipe is divided into two regions:
– the boundary layer region, and
– the and the irrotational (core) flow region.
• The thickness of this
boundary layer Irrotational Boundary
layer
flow
increases in the flow
direction until it
reaches the pipe
center.

4/22/2017

## • Hydrodynamic entrance region ─ the region from

the pipe inlet to the point at which the boundary layer
merges at the centerline.
• Hydrodynamically fully developed region ─ the
region beyond the entrance region in which the
velocity profile is fully developed and remains
unchanged.
• The velocity profile in the fully developed region is
– parabolic in laminar flow, and
– somewhat flatter or fuller in turbulent flow.

## Thermal Entrance Region

• Consider a fluid at a uniform temperature entering a circular
tube whose surface is maintained at a different temperature.
• Thermal boundary layer along the tube is developing.
• The thickness of this boundary layer increases in the flow
direction until the boundary layer reaches the tube center.
• Thermal entrance region.
• Thermally fully developed region ─ the region beyond the
thermal entrance region in which the dimensionless
temperature profile
expressed as
(Ts-T)/(
)/(T
Ts-Tm)
remains unchanged.

## Turbulent flow Nusselt Number

• The Nusselt numbers are much
higher in the entrance region.
• The Nusselt number reaches
a constant value at a distance
of less than 10 diameters.
• The Nusselt numbers for the
uniform surface temperature and uniform surface heat
flux conditions are identical in the fully developed
regions, and nearly identical in the entrance regions.
 Nusselt number is insensitive to the type of
thermal boundary condition.

## General Thermal Analysis

• In the absence of any work interactions, the conservation
of energy equation for the steady flow of a fluid in a tube
Q& = q& A = mc
s s
& (T − T ) (W)
p e i
(15)

## • The thermal conditions at the surface can usually be

approximated as:
– constant surface temperature, or
– constant surface heat flux.

8
4/22/2017

## Surface heat flux is expressed as:

(16)

where hx is the local heat transfer coefficient and Ts and Tm are the
surface and the mean fluid temperatures at that location.
 Note that the mean fluid temperature Tm of a fluid flowing in a tube
must change during heating or cooling.
As in the fully developed flow, hx = h = constant,
the surface temperature Ts must change when = constant, and
the surface heat flux must change when Ts = constant.
Thus we may have either Ts = constant or = constant at the
surface of a tube, but not both.

## Constant Surface Heat Flux

• In the case of constant heat flux, the rate of heat transfer can
also be expressed as
Q& = q& A = mc
s
& (T − T ) (W)
s p e i (17)
• Then the mean fluid temperature at the tube exit becomes
q& A
Te = Ti + s s (18)
mc& p
• The mean fluid temperature increases linearly in the flow direction
since the surface area increases linearly in the flow direction (As is
equal to the perimeter, which is constant, times the tube length).

## • The surface temperature in the

case of constant surface heat
flux can be determined from
q&
q& s = h (Ts − Tm ) → Ts = Tm + s
h
(19)
• In the fully developed region,
the surface temperature Ts will
also increase linearly in the
flow direction
• since h is constant and thus
Ts - Tm = constant (Figure).
• Of course this is true when the
fluid properties remain
constant during flow.

## • Applying the steady-flow energy balance

to a tube slice of thickness dx, the slope
of the mean fluid temperature Tm can be
determined

The shape of the temperature

## Constant Surface Temperature

• The energy balance on a differential control volume

δ Q& = mc
& p dTm = h (Ts − Tm ) dAs (25)
• Since the mean temperature of the fluid Tm increases in the flow
direction as a result of heat transfer, so the heat flux decays with x.
• We can write, (dTm=-d(Ts-Tm)) as the surface temperature is
constant and dAs=pdx, therefore,

• This dimensionless parameter is
called the number of transfer

differential volume element.
• A force balance on the volume

Pressure Drop
• One implication from Eq. 37 is that the pressure
drop gradient (dP/dx) must be constant (the left
side is a function only of r, and the right side is a
function only of x).
• Integrating from x=0 where the pressure is P1 to
x=L where the pressure is P2 gives

Consider the flow of oil at 20°C in a 30-cm-diameter pipeline at
an average velocity of 2 m/s (Fig). A 200-m-long section of the
pipeline passes through icy waters of a lake at 0°C. Measurements
indicate that the surface temperature of the pipe is very nearly
0°C. Disregarding the thermal resistance of the pipe material,
determine (a) the temperature of the oil when the pipe leaves the
lake, (b) the rate of heat transfer from the oil, and (c) the pumping
power required to overcome the pressure losses and to maintain
the flow of the oil in the pipe.

## Turbulent flow in Tubes

• Most correlations for the friction and heat transfer
coefficients in turbulent flow are based on experimental
studies.
• For smooth tubes, the friction factor in turbulent flow can
be determined from the explicit first Petukhov equation
−2
f = ( 0.79 ln Re− 1.64 ) 3000<Re<5 ×106 (64)

## • The Nusselt number in turbulent flow can be calculated by

the Colburn equation

## • For fully developed turbulent flow the more accurate

## • Modified correlations are available for/due to :

– liquid metals (Pr<<1),
– large variation in fluid properties due to a large
temperature difference,
– surface roughness,
– flow through tube annulus.
• Original correlations are also approximately
valid for:
– developing Turbulent Flow in the Entrance
Region,
– turbulent Flow in Noncircular Tubes.

Problem:
Water is to be heated from 15°C to 65°C as it flows through a 3-
cm-internal-diameter 5-m-long tube (Fig). The tube is equipped
with an electric resistance heater that provides uniform heating
throughout the surface of the tube. The outer surface of the
heater is well insulated, so that in steady operation all the heat
generated in the heater is transferred to the water in the tube. If
the system is to provide hot water at a rate of 10 L/min,
determine the power rating of the resistance heater. Also,
estimate the inner surface temperature of the pipe at the exit.

tube surface and Nuo on the outer tube
surface— since it may involve heat

Problem:
In a long annulus (35 mm ID and 50 mm OD), water is heated by
maintaining the outer surface of inner tube at 60oC. Water enters
at 20oC and leaves at 34oC, while its flow velocity is 2 m/s.
Estimate the heat transfer coefficient.

35
4/22/2017

## • Tubes with rough surfaces have much higher heat

transfer coefficients than tubes with smooth surfaces.
• Therefore, tube surfaces are often intentionally
roughened, corrugated, or finned in order to enhance the
convection heat transfer coefficient and thus the
convection heat transfer rate.

## • Heat transfer in turbulent flow in a tube has been

increased by as much as 400 percent by roughening the
surface.
• Roughening the surface, of course, also increases the
friction factor and thus the power requirement for the
pump or the fan.
• The convection heat transfer coefficient can also be
increased by inducing pulsating flow by pulse generators,
by inducing swirl by inserting a twisted tape into the
tube.
