2 How is the heat transfer? Heat can transfer between the surface of a solid conductor and the surrounding medium whenever temperature gradient exists.ConductionConvectionNatural convectionForced Convection
3 As a result of heat exchange Natural and forced ConvectionNatural convection occurs whenever heat flows between a solid and fluid, or between fluid layers.As a result of heat exchangeChange in density of effective fluid layers taken place, which causes upward flow of heated fluid.If this motion is associated with heat transfer mechanism only, then it is called Natural Convection
4 Forced ConvectionIf this motion is associated by mechanical means such as pumps, gravity or fans, the movement of the fluid is enforced.And in this case, we then speak of Forced convection.
5 Heat ExchangersA device whose primary purpose is the transfer of energy between two fluids is named a Heat Exchanger.
6 Applications of Heat Exchangers Heat Exchangers prevent car engine overheating and increase efficiencyHeat exchangers are used in Industry for heat transferCar—prevent overheating with “high performance cooling applications”Maintain fluids at optimal temperature such that engine efficiency is increased and component wear minimizedBoilers and condensers are opposite processes used in industry-Boilers used to create steam—sometimes to drive steam driven turbines-condenseros bring steam back to liquid for reuseDistillation set-ups typically use condensers to condense distillate vapors back into liquid.Ultimately, condensers-cool refrigerant vapor back to liquid-- sub cooled liquid flows out of the condenser and into the evaporator where it absorbs heat from air in the surrounding pipe and generates cold air.Air conditioners utilize a closed heat exchange system that separates the hot and the cold fluids. Energy is transported via convection between the fluid and inner pipe surface, conduction through the pipe and then convection from the outer pipe surface into the second fluid. This closed system is very similar to the one examined in this lab experiment, and its widespread applicability is why this lab was designed.Heat exchangers are used in AC and furnaces
7 The closed-type exchanger is the most popular one. One example of this type is the Double pipe exchanger.In this type, the hot and cold fluid streams do not come into direct contact with each other. They are separated by a tube wall or flat plate.

10 Velocity distribution and boundary layer When fluid flow through a circular tube of uniform cross-suction and fully developed,The velocity distribution depend on the type of the flow.In laminar flow the volumetric flowrate is a function of the radius.V = volumetric flowrateu = average mean velocity
11 In turbulent flow, there is no such distribution. The molecule of the flowing fluid which adjacent to the surface have zero velocity because of mass-attractive forces. Other fluid particles in the vicinity of this layer, when attempting to slid over it, are slow down by viscous forces.Boundary layerr
12 1) Heat must transfer through the boundary layer by conduction. Accordingly the temperature gradient is larger at the wall and through the viscous sub-layer, and small in the turbulent core.The reason for this is1) Heat must transfer through the boundary layer by conduction.2) Most of the fluid have a low thermal conductivity (k)3) While in the turbulent core there are a rapid moving eddies, which they are equalizing the temperature.Tube wallheatinghcooling
