 September 5, 2007, 14:33 help please with forced convection #1 lucia Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I have a problem of forced convection inside a pipe. Inside of the pipe flow a hot fluid and outside is constantly cold (cold water). In the boundary conditions of the wall, must I determine the Convection? Or is it correct if you only determine the Temperature of the cold medium? Thanks!

Is this effective heat transfer coefficient up to the wall-inner fluid so: Ae*U = 1/ (1/hAe + ln(re/ri)/2piLk) (A0 = external area)? Also must I turn on the option "Shell conduction" and need I to provide the wall-thickness? Thanks very much.
