 December 26, 2006, 03:10 calculating temp #1 student Guest   Posts: n/a hii given an electronic heat transfer source of 29 W, with a air flow of around 2m/s at 25 deg C ambient temperature conditions, how to estimate the surface temp of the component. I am getting temperature of around 136 deg C in a cfd package.The material is of stainless steel. can u comment

To know what i mean exactly,read up your heat transfer by convection theory.

 December 26, 2006, 08:53 Re: calculating temp #4 Q Guest   Posts: n/a I would be happy to simulate and compare. However, you will need to post the heat flux and not the heat load in order to setup a comparable model. Also we will need a length scale to determine turbulence effect, i.e. macro-geometric scale, e.g. 1 meter or 1 km. Regards Q
