Heat transfer in complex duct flows.

E. M. Sparrow

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this paper, the highlights of several related experimental investigations of heat/mass transfer in complex duct flows are described. The flows involve such processes as separation, reattachment, recirculation (i.e. backflow), and vortex action. These processes are commonly encountered in the passages of actual heat exchange devices. In all of the experiments, detailed local heat/mass transfer data were obtained from which the effects of the complex flow fields were inferred. Average transfer coefficients were also determined.
