Various Mode Heat Transfer

AJ Baker, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Last updated: July 7, 2009

11 reviews

Consider an array of heated tubes submerged in a vessel with fluid flowing past them. Neglecting end effects, the flowfield can be assumed 2-D in planes with normals parallel to the tube axes....
