 November 30, 2000, 02:20 free stream temperature #1 qzhu Guest   Posts: n/a Please teach me the following question: when I use the tempetature boundary conditions,for example convection wall , free stream temperature is required. Where is the "free stream temperature" ? For example, free stream temperature is a reference temperature in fluid field(indoor)? or,free stream temperature is a reference temperature in fluid field(outdoor)?

For example, in the case of a utility boiler, the free stream temperature can be defined as the mean temp of the water/steam mixture rising in the wall tubes (away from the boundary layer). If no heat were being extracted from the system by this means then the external (environment) temp could be applied e.g. 273K in scotland! Angus sircorp and Dark_Shepard like this.

It controls the heat transfer by the equation: heat transfer= heat transfer coefficient *(T_wall - T_free) sircorp and Dark_Shepard like this.
