Measurement of heat transfer coefficients

Aniruddha Bagchi, Francis A. Kulacki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, measurements of steady-state Nusselt numbers in superposed fluid-porous layers with η < 1 and δ < 1 are discussed and compared to computed values. These measurements point to the need for more exhaustive experimentation over an extended range of Rayleigh number, but they also provide entirely new data for that case where δ < 1 and η < 1.
