Would someone please suggest me how many iteration i will do for a static setup. i want to calculate the average flow and temperature distribution in the duct. Thanks

This gives you an idea how fast things change. __________________ Uwe Pilz -- Sie ahnen nicht, wieviel Poesie in der Berechnung einer Logarithmentafel enthalten ist (Carl Friedrich Gauß)

For that you need some idea of the velocity . - calculate the Prandt number for the outer flow. You need the kinematic viscosity and the thermal diffusivity for that, which you may get from tables. For air is Pr~0.7 and for water at 20 deg Pr~7. - calculate the Nußelt number With the help of the Nußelt number you may calculate the maximal thermal flow (at starting temperature difference). Using the the heat capacity you may calculate how long it lasts to exchange all the energy. The real time will be longer, depending on what remaining difference you accept. But you get at least an idea in which range this time will be. __________________ Uwe Pilz -- Sie ahnen nicht, wieviel Poesie in der Berechnung einer Logarithmentafel enthalten ist (Carl Friedrich Gauß)
