This course is intended to provide a fundamental treatment of fluid
flows controlled by viscous or turbulent stress gradients and the
corresponding heat transfer between a fluid and a solid surface.
Solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations for heat conducting laminar
and turbulent shear layers will be studied.
Topics to be covered
- Conservation principles, viscous fluid stresses, Navier-Stokes
equations, classification of viscous, heat conducting flow regimes,
concept of turbulent flows.
- Some exact solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations, fully
developed laminar flow in tubes.
- Boundary Layer Theory, flat plate momentum and thermal boundary
layers, differential equations of the Boundary Layer, integral
equations of the Boundary Layer, flows with mass injection, effect of
high and low Prandtl number fluids.
- Circular-tube thermal-entry length solutions, effect of axial
variation of temperature and heat flux (laminar).
- Turbulent flow through smooth tubes and in external boundary
layers, concept of transition to turbulence, experimental correlations
- Effect of roughness on turbulent heat and momentum transfer
- Prandtl number effects on heat transfer
- Free convection
