Thermally Developing Convection from Newtonian Flow in Rectangular Ducts with Uniform Heating
The behavior of hydrodynamically fully developed and thermally developing laminar flow of Newtonian fluids in rectangular ducts with arbitrary aspect ratio and equal heating on adjacent walls, subject to the H2 boundary condition, is studied numerically. The developing Nusselt number is obtained for a wide range of duct aspect ratios. The limiting solution of Nu(H2) as Z approaches infinity was found to agree excellently with those found in the literature. 8 refs.
