 March 11, 2008, 16:16 Nu & Bulk temperature calculate #1 Emad Guest   Posts: n/a Dear CFD staff I want to calculate Nu_local and Nu_avarage numbers for 3D ractangular duct with bottom side is heating with constant heat flux. And l would to find Bulk tempareture in this side. Thank you very much for help me emad
