Heat Transfer in a Gray Tube with Forced Convection Internal Radiation and Axial Wall Conduction

Document Type


Publication Date



A method of successive approximations is employed to solve the problem of heat transfer to a transparent gas flowing through a radiating-conducting tube with turbulent forced convection between the tube wall and the gas, and with energy generation in the wall. Emphasis is given to the effect of emissivity of the wall to the tube and gas temperature profiles.
