The combined heattransfer of the radiation and natural convection in the participating (absorbing-emitting-scattering) media is an important problem in the many fields of building and industry, including the boiler, furnace, building thermal comfort, and solar reactor.
appropriate Nusselt number correlation to be identified and used to calculate the convective heat transfer coefficient and, eventually, the heat transfer rate. This value is compared to the value inputted by the user, and the user answer is deemed correct if it compares within 1% of the solver s
Inverse problems are well known in nearly every discipline of science and engineering. In mechanical engineering, in particular, inverse heat transfer problems have always been a major focus for research and improvement. Inverse heat transfer solutions are usually needed when direct measurement of a boundary condition, commonly in the form of
Eqs. an Cebeci and P. Bradshaw, Physical and Computational Aspects of Convective HeatTransfer (Springer, New York, 1984). for some arbitrary values of Deborah number β, the mixed convection parameter λ, the Hartmann number H and the Prandtl number Pr.The ratio of the relaxation and retardation times λ 1 is held fixed (=0) throughout the study. Here, we used a uniform grid of Δη = 0.01 ...
Conjugate HeatTransfer (CHT) is applicable whenever there are two adjacent domains and we wish to analyze the heattransfer between these domains. These domains can either be solid or fluid domains. One example is the forced or natural convective cooling of a heat-sink attached to active electronics components which generate heat.
