hi foamer
i would like to calculate nusselt in axisymmetric pipe, T reference in nusselt equation is local bulk mean temperature, how can i calculate it?

The bulk temperature is usually calculated by setting y+=250 in turbulent wall temperature function.

you may find some clue at
B.U. Bae, H.Y. Yoon, D.J. Euh, C.H. Song and G.C. Park, Computational analysis of a subcooled boiling ow with a one-group interfacial area transport equation", J. Nucl. Sci. Technol. 45, 341 (2008)
