KNOWN: Variation of hx with x for laminar flow over a flat plate.

FIND: Ratio of average coefficient, xh, to local coefficient, hx, at x. SCHEMATIC:

ANALYSIS: The average value of hx between 0 and x is

1Ch h dx x dx x

Ch2 x 2Cx x

Hence, x h 2.h

COMMENTS: Both the local and average coefficients decrease with increasing distance x from the leading edge, as shown in the sketch below.


KNOWN: Variation of local convection coefficient with x for free convection from a vertical heated plate.

FIND: Ratio of average to local convection coefficient. SCHEMATIC:

ANALYSIS: The average coefficient from 0 to x is x

1Ch h dx x dx x

Hence, x

The variations with distance of the local and average convection coefficients are shown in the sketch.

COMMENTS: Note that h/h4/3xx= is independent of x. Hence the average coefficient for an entire plate of length L is LL4h h3 =, where hL is the local coefficient at x = L. Note also that the average exceeds the local. Why?


KNOWN: Expression for the local heat transfer coefficient of a circular, hot gas jet at T∞ directed normal to a circular plate at Ts of radius ro.

FIND: Heat transfer rate to the plate by convection.

ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Flow is axisymmetric about the plate, (3) For h(r), a and b are constants and n ≠ -2.

ANALYSIS: The convective heat transfer rate to the plate follows from Newton’s law of cooling

The local heat transfer coefficient is known to have the form,

COMMENTS: Note the importance of the requirement, n ≠ -2. Typically, the radius of the jet is much smaller than that of the plate.

COMMENTS: The result LLh/h1.0= is unique to x = 3m and is a consequence of the existence of a maximum for hxx . The maximum occurs at x = 2m, where

ANALYSIS: From Eq. 6.17,

where Ts = T(x,0) = 90°C. Evaluating k at the arithmetic mean of the freestream and surface temperatures, T = (20 + 90)°C/2 = 55°C = 328 K, Table A.4 yields k = 0.0284 W/m⋅K. Hence, with

where 12h is the average coefficient for the section of length (x2 - x1). The heat rate can also be written in terms of the local coefficient, Eq. (6.3), as

Combining Eq. (1) and (2),

(b) The heat rate, given as Eq. (1), can also be expressed as

which is the difference between the heat rate for the plate over the section (0 - x2) and over the section (0 - x1). Combining Eqs. (1) and (5), find,
