Hi all,

I have a problem of forced convection inside a pipe. Inside of the pipe flow a hot fluid and outside is constantly cold (cold water).

In the boundary conditions of the wall, must I determine the Convection? Or is it correct if you only determine the Temperature of the cold medium?

Thanks!

Re: help please with forced convection

You need to provide the external temperature and the effective heat transfer coefficient up to the wall-inner fluid boundary. The wall-inner fluid heat transfer is calculated by Fluent.

Re: help please with forced convection

Thanks Joe!

Is this effective heat transfer coefficient up to the wall-inner fluid so: Ae*U = 1/ (1/hAe + ln(re/ri)/2piLk) (A0 = external area)? Also must I turn on the option "Shell conduction" and need I to provide the wall-thickness?

Thanks very much.
