Help !!!! about Convection Co-efficient...Urgent!!
Hi All,

I am doing Heat Transfer Analysis for flow over flat plate. Here conditions are WATER temp = 25 Deg Celcius, WATER Velocity = 10 m/s

GLASS(surface): Dia = 2 cm, Temp of surface = 60 deg Celcius. This is Forced convection case. Surface is vertical & flow is also vertically downward. From emperical relation i found VERY LARGE value heat transfer Convection coefficient(h) = 10000.

I think this value is not appropriate value. So can any body tell about certain appropriate co-relation for FORCED CONVECTION HEAT TRANSFER. bcos above calculated value is too high for water in this case.

any help would be appreciable. thanks alot
