Prandtl Number Effects on Natural Convection Heat Transfer in Concentric and Eccentric Horizontal Cylindrical Annuli

Projahn, U. and Beer, Hans (1985):
Prandtl Number Effects on Natural Convection Heat Transfer in Concentric and Eccentric Horizontal Cylindrical Annuli.
In: Wärme- und Stoffübertragung, 19 (4), pp. 249-254. [Article]

Abstract

The influence of various Prandtl numbers on the laminar convection flow between concentric and vertically eccentric cylinders is studied numerically. To overcome the difficulties associated with the complex physical domains a numerical transformation method is used to map this region on a rectangle. Although two independent computer programs which are based on different formulations of the governing equations were used, nearly identical results were obtained. Local heat transfer results are presented for a wide range of Rayleigh numbers for the first time. Local heat transfer rates are found to depend on the Prandtl number in addition to the Rayleigh number dependence.
