Heat transfer to laminar flow across plates and cylinders of various cross sections
Avilov V. V., Decker I.
Local and total Nusselt numbers were calculated for a potential flow across a flat plate for the case of large or moderate Peclet numbers (Pe). The method of solution is based on multiple applications of the Wiener-Hopf method by solving the integral equation for the power source function. Conformal transforms provide Nusselt numbers for cylinders of various cross sections. The accuracy of the method is on the order of exp(—2Pe).
