Turbulent Prandt Number
Hi there :

I have to make a model of turbulent heat transfer. I read in the Theory Reference that each model has a different prandt number (Keff = K + Kturb).I need some references of experiment values, a good book or someone with esperience in a turbulent heat transfer problem.

Thnak you in advance Sergio

Re: Turbulent Prandt Number
You can read Incropera's book for general background in Heat Transfer and then Max Jakob's for some test data in simple forced convection cases.

You can refer :

William M Kays, 'Turbulent Prandtl Number - Where Are We ?', Journal of Heat Transfer, Vol. 116, May, 1994.
