 September 3, 2008, 02:32 ItsVery Urgent:Pressure,Heat Convection coeficient #1 dev.... Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I have a question about Heat Transfer (NATURAL CONVECTION) & Air conditioning system. I have a gaseus environment of CO2 gas over a FLAT PLATE. Now Initial conditions are: 1. CO2 gas condition:- Pressure = 1.4 Bar(WHICH IS GREATER THAN ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE), Temperature = 30 Celcius, Relative Humidity = 80% 2. Flate Plate is at tempetareture of 10 C(Celcius) Now I want to get value of Heat-Transfer Coefficient (h). Is there any relation to calculate this Heat transfer coefficient for NATURAL CONVECTION PROBLEM ? yours help/suggestions would be appreciable. Thank you

(CO2 can easily be considered as ideal gas law) Find thermal expansion co-efficient (beta) = 1/Tinfinity where T is in kelvin Find Grahs-hoff number = (gravity*beta*del T*length of plate along the vertical direction^3)/(kinematic viscosity^2) find Rayleigh number = Gr*Pr if it is <10^9, flow is laminar otherwise it is turbulent Nusselt number = (0.678*Ra^0.25) (Pr/(Pr+0.952))^0.25 Nu = hL/k so h = Nu*k/L Regards, Jayaveera
