It is put at the top,
because cool air
sinks, so it cools the
food on the way
down.
It is warmer at
the bottom, so
this warmer air
rises and a
convection
current is set up.
Convection
What happens to the particles in a liquid or a gas when you
heat them?
The particles spread out and become
less dense.
This effects fluid movement.

Fluid movement
Cooler, more dense, fluids sink
through warmer, less dense fluids.

In effect, warmer liquids and gases rise up.
Cooler liquids and gases sinks

Convection is the process in which heat is carried from
place to place by the bulk movement of a fluid.
Convection currents are set up when a pan of water is
heated.

The convective heat transfer is defined for a combined solid and fluid
system.
The fluid packets close to a solid wall attain a zero relative velocity close to
the solid wall : Momentum Boundary Layer.
The fluid packets close to a solid wall come to thermal
equilibrium with the wall.
The fluid particles will exchange maximum possible energy
flux with the solid wall.
A Zero temperature difference exists between wall and
fluid packets at the wall.
A small layer of fluid particles close the the wall come to
Mechanical, Thermal and Chemical Equilibrium With solid
wall.
Fundamentally this fluid layer is in Thermodynamic
Equilibrium with the solid wall.

Physical Mechanism of
Convection Heat Transfer
Convection is the mechanism of heat transfer in
the presence of bulk fluid motion.

It can be classified as:

1) Natural or free convection:
The bulk fluid motion is due to buoyant force caused by density
gradient between the hot and cold fluid regions. The temperature &
velocity distributions of free convection along a vertical hot flat
surface is shown in figure below.

2) Forced convection :
The bulk fluid motion is caused by external means, such
as a fan, a pump or natural wind, etc.

The properties of the flow fields
Due to the properties of fluid both velocity and thermal
boundary layers are formed. Velocity boundary layer is
caused by viscosity and thermal boundary layer is
caused by both viscosity and thermal conductivity of the
fluid.

Internal versus external flow
- External flow : the solid surface is surrounded by the
pool of moving fluid
- Internal flow : the moving fluid is inside a solid channel
or a tube.
15
The properties of the flow fields
Laminar flow versus turbulent flow
- Laminar flow: the stream lines are approximately parallel to
each other
- Turbulent flow: the bulk motion of the fluid is superimposed
with turbulence

u
Heat Transfer in Equilibrium Layer
The thickness of stagnant layer decides the magnitude of normal temperature
gradient at the wall.
And hence, the thickness of wall fluid layer decides the magnitude of convective
heat transfer coefficient.
Typically, the convective heat transfer coefficient for laminar flow is relatively
low compared to the convective heat transfer coefficient for turbulent flow.
This is due to turbulent flow having a thinner stagnant fluid film layer on the
heat transfer surface.

Estimation of heat transfer coefficient is basically
computation of temperature profile at the wall.
A general theoretical and experimental study is
essential to understand how the stagnant layer is
developed.
The global geometry of the solid wall and flow
conditions will decide the structure of stagnant layer.

The governing parameters of convection
heat transfer
Newtons law of cooling

The main objective to study convection heat transfer is to
determine the proper value of convection heat transfer
coefficient for specified conditions. It depends on the
following parameters:

- The Bulk motion velocity, u, (m/s)
- The dimension of the body, L, ( m)
- The surface temperature, T

- The bulk fluid temperature, T

It is impossible to achieve a correlation equation for
convection heat transfer in terms of 10 variables. A better
way to reduce the number of variables is required.

Dimensionless analysis
There are 11 parameters with 4 basic units (length, m), (mass,
kg), (temperature,
o
C or K) , and (time, s).
Applying the method of dimensional analysis, it can be
grouped into 11- 4 = 7 dimensionless groups, they are:

dynamic viscosity () as the 4 basic parameters, and velocity (u) as the
input parameter. The dimensionless number is obtained by solving the 4
constants, a, b, c, & d.

Simply the dimensionless equations !!!

Now we have reduced the equation involving 11
variables into a 7 dimensionless group equation.
However, 7 dimensionless groups is still too large, we
need neglecting the unimportant dimensionless
groups.

Eckert number is important for high speed flow. It can be
neglected for our application.
If the average fluid temperature is used for getting the fluid
properties, the temperature ratio can also be discarded.

The Prandtl Number
It is the ratio of the momentum diffusivity to the thermal
diffusivity.
The momentum diffusivity is the kinematic viscosity and it
controls the rate of diffusion of momentum in a fluid
medium.
Thermal difusivity controls how fast the heat diffuses in a
medium. It has the form

The ratio of the two is called Prandtl number.
