PREFACE TO FIRST (SI) EDITION Heat and mass transfer processes are the integral parts of the technology and environment. During the recent past, its importance has been recognised and a full course on this topic was introduced in almost all the engineering and technological institutions of the world. Most of the engineering institutions in India and abroad . have switched over from MKS or FPS to SI (System Internationale) system of units and the rest are in the transition stage. Though there are many books availabie on this topic in the international market but there is a scarcity of good books written i:1 SI units covering all the aspects of the subject matter. This book has been written to fill this gap. This book will suit the courses followed in the engineering colleges leading to B.E. degrees. It will also suit the courses of A.M.I.E. and U.P.S.C. examinations. I have attempted to present the matter iri a simple, lucid and precise manner. A large number of good practical and typical problems have been solved in all the nineteen chapters of the book and I hope the book will meet the requirements of the students, teachers and practical engineers. Sincere acknowledgement are due to the authors listed in the references whose books/papers have been consulted during the preparation of this work. Finally, the author wishes to thank his wife Meera and sons Sanjay and Rajay for the hardships which they had to face due to the authors engagement in the v.enture.

.1 Intn;>duction Heat transfer is that science which predicts the rate of energy transfer taking place between material bodies as a result of temperature difference between them. According to thermodynamics, this energy transfer is defined as heat. The science of heat transfer not only explains how heat energy may be transferred but alsp predicts the rate at which the exchange will take place under certain specified conditions. There is a difference between thermodynamics and heat tra,!fer and it is the heat transfer rate which forms the basisfor difference. Thermodynamics deals with a system in equilibrium and predic� the amount of energy required to change a system from one equilibrium state to another. Moreover, from thermodynamics point of view, the amount of heat transferred during a process simply ·equals the difference between the energy change of the system and the work done. Evidently, this type of analysis neither considers the mechanism of heat flow nor the time required to transfer the heat. H simply suggests how much heat to supply to, or reject from, a system during a process between the prescribed end states without taking , care of whether or how this could be accomplished. The reason for this lack of information obtainable from thermodynamics analysis is the absence of time as variable. As an example, consider the cooling of a hot steel bar placed in a pail of water. Thermodynamical analysis will predict the final equilibrium.temperature of the steel bar_ water combination but it will not predict how long it _takes to reach this equilibrium condition or what the temperature of the bar will be after a certain length of time before the equilibrium condition is attained. But heat transfer study will predict the temperature of both the bar a�d water as a function of time. 1.1 Importance of Heat Transfer Study
The study of heat transfer has become an increasingly inten�_e concern in modem technology, in the earth sciences, in organic metabolism and in environmental : engineering. The importance of study· of heat transfer can be. understood from the following areas in which the knowledge of hea� transfer is required: (i) Energy production and conversion.There is not a single ,ipplication in this area that does not involve heat transfer effects in some way. For thermal design of boilers, steam turbines, condensers, feed heaters, other heat exchangers, cooling towers, internal combustion engines, gas turbines, jet propulsions, nuclear reactors, magneto hydrodynamic devices, engineers have to make a detailed heat transfer analysis. Solar energy conversion for space heating and electric power generation is full of heat transfer problems. For the efficient use of geothermal energy sources, there are numerous heat transfer problems that must be solved. (ii) Ref!:igeration and airconditioning.The ·thermal design of coml)ressors, lndensers. eva_pora�ors, incinerators· and cryogenic _storage equipments and other cooling and heating equipments involves an intensive stuay of heat transfer. (iii) Electric machines.Cooling systems for_ electrical motors, generators and transformers involve heat transfer effects as heat generated during the flow of current through the windings of these machines has to be dissipated effectively. Insulations provided on electric wires Reed a heat transfer analysis to avoid conditio�s which will . cause overheating. Electronic equipments need cooling systems and that involve heat transfer analysis for design.

(iv) Chemical and petrochemical operations.Heating, cooling, evaporation and condensation in chemical operations are nothing but heat transfer problems. A lot of heat lransfer analysis is required in designing the fractional distillation plants for crude petroleum.
(v) Civil engineering.Construction of dams, and heavy structures, design of buildings for the minimisation of heat losses need heat transfer study.
(vi) Space vehicles.The rapid removal of heat from the outer surface of space vehicle is a must for its durability. Maintenance of an optimum temperature is necessary for proper function of the instruments mounted on the space vehicles. (vii) Manufacturing process.The casting of metals, extrusion, metal cuttings and heal treatment of metals involve heat transfer study.
(viii) Environmental engineering.Heat transfer processes are relevant to air and water pollution and strongly influence local and global climate. Now, the world is confronted with thermal pollution problem associated with the discharge of large amounts of waste heat from a power plant to the environment. Numerous heat transfer considerations relate to the design of cooling towers to alleviate the environmental problems associated with tl1is discharge. (ix) Earth sciences.Numerous heat transfer considerations relate to the study of meteorology, geophysics and oceanography. (x) Astronomy....:._The study of astronomy involves heat transfer problems.
(xi) Agriculture and food processing.To develop better variety of seeds one is confronted with heat transfer prob�ems. There is a lot of heat transfer study in food processing.
The various engineering problems involving heat transfer study can be classified in two groups ; (a) heat flow situations where maximum heat transfer is desirable with minimum possible heat exchange area (e.g. walls of LC. enginr.s combustion chambers, heat exchanger, outer space vehicles, gas turbine blades, etc.) (b) heat flow situations where heat transfer is undersirable and its flow is to be prevented (e.g. walls of building, steam pipes, etc.)
From the above examples, it follows that, in almost every branch of engineering, heat transfer problems are encountered which are not capable of solution by thermodynamic reasonings alone, but �uires a heat transfer analysis. Heat transfer studies mainly require the knowledge of thermodynamics:rfluid mecIJanics, physics and mathematics. 1.2
Basic Modes of Heat Transfer
There are thr� basic modes of heat 1rn;nsfei They are :
(i) Conduction. (ii) Convection. (iii) Radiation.
They have in common that temperature differences must exist and that heat IS always t.ransferred in the direction of decreasing temperature. But they differ entirely in the

physical mechanism and laws by which they are governed. The following examples will distinguish clearly between the three modes of heat transfer. A class teacher wishes to distribute apple to a row of students. He may cause the apple to reach the farthest most student by any one of the following methods :(a) He could deliver the apple to the student nearest to him who delivers the same to the next and so on till finally it reacJ:tes the last student. (b) He could go to the last student and deliver the apple to him. (c) He could throw the apple so that it reaches the last student
Here we. assume that the apple .corresponds to heat energy while the student corresponds to the molecules. Conduction, convection anJ r.tdiation corresponds to first, second and third methods of delivering the apple to the last student. In conduction, heat transfer takes place due to direct molecular communication without any appreciable displacement of the system. In convection, heat transfer takes place due to molecular movement. In radiation, there is no need of any medium while in conduction and convection material medium is essential.
It will be worthwhile here to discuss the basic mechanism of various modes of heat transfer separately. 1. 3. Conduction Mechanism
Heat conduction is a mechanism of heat transfer from a region of high temperature to a region of low te:uperature within a medium (solid, liquid or gas) or between different mediums in direct physical contact. The mechanism of heat conduction may be explained by two conceptsmolecular activity and electron drift.
(i) Molecular activity./n conduction heat flow, the energy is transmitted by direct molecular communication without apprecia�le displacement of molecules. Alternatively, conduction may be viewed as the transfer of energy from the more energetic to the less energetic particles of a substance due to interactions between the particles. From the kinetic theory viewpoint, the temperature of an element of matter is proportional to the mean kinetic .energy of its constitutent of the velocity and relative position of the molecules is called internal energy. When molecules in one region acquire a mean kinetic energy greater thao that of the molecules in an adjacent region, as manifested by temperature difference, the molecules possessing the greater energy will transmit part of their energy to the molecules in the lower temperature region. For example, if the molecules of conducting material at one end of a rod are heated they are set into rapid motion and these, in communicating by elastic impact with their neighbours of lower kinetic energy, set the latter into more violent motion, and so on throughout the length of the rod. Thus, the phenomenon of heat conduction in solids is as a result of transfer of internal energy from one molecule to other. Alternatively, in a solid, conduction may be attributed to molecular activity in theform of lattice vibration.
(ii) Electron drift.An alternative picture of heat conduction is derived from the concept of electron drift. As we know, good conductors of heat are also good conductors of electricity, and since the conduction of electricity is postulated on the theory of free electron drift, so it appears rational to ascribe heat conduction primarily to the mobility offree or valence electrons.
Conduction is the only mechanism by which heat can flow in opaque solids. The best example of conduction is heating of a metal rod from one end.

Heat and Mass Tnmsfer
Conduction is also important in fluids and gases but in nonsolid medium it is accompanied with convection and radiation. Conduction in liquids is due to elastic impact while in gase:, and vapors, it is due to molecular diffusion of kinetic energy.
Irrespective of the exact mechanism, which is no� yet fully known, the observable effect of heat conduction is an equaliz.ation of temperature. 1.4. Convection Mechanjsm
Convection is a process involving mass movement of fluids. The mechanism of convection is the transfer of heat energy by actual physical movement of fluid molecule from one place to another in which there exists a temperature gradient. Basically, this mode of heat transfer is comprised of two mechanismenergy transfer due to random moleculw motion (diffusion) and bulk or macro.scopic motion offluid.
When a temperature difference produces a density difference (buoyancy effects) which results in the mass movement of the fluid, the process is called free or natural convection. Some examples of free convection are heat flow from a hot place to atmosphere, chilling e;ffect of a cold wind on a warm body, and heating of room by a stove, etc.
When an external source such as pump or fan causes the fluid motion to take place, the process is called forced convection. Some examples of forced convection are heat exchange in condensers, nuclear reactors, all types of heat ex�hangers, air conditioning equipments, cooling system of internal combustion engines, etc.
A major concern of the heat transfer engineer is the prediction of the rate of heat transfer between a fluid and a solid boundary surface. This takes place in various steps. Suppose the solid surface is at higher temperature than the fluid. First, heat will flow by conduction from the surface to adjacent particles of fluid. The energy thus transferred will serve to increase the temperature and the internal �nergy of these fluid particles. Thus the fluid particles will move to a region of cold fluid (lower t.mperature in the fluid) where they will mix with and transfer a part of their energy to, other fluid particles. Note that this flow is of fluid as well as of energy. The energy is actually stored in the fluid particles and due to mass motion of fluid particles, it is also €arried away. Thus the heat transfer between a solid surface and fluid is due to conduction as well convection. In a fluid flow over a heated surface, a hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layers are formed. The random molecular motion generally dominates near the surface where the fluid motion is low (or zero). The bulk fluid motion d,ominates away from the surface and within the boundary layer. Hence the extensive study of heat transfer in the boundary layer is a must
Convection process involving phase changes leads to the two important fields boiling and condensation.
1.5. Radiation Mechanism / '· Radiation heat transfer is due to property of a matter to emit and absorb thermal energy (or different kind of rays) in the form of electromagnetic waves and to the fact that no material medium is required for the transfer of heat. In other words, radiation is a process by which heat flows from a high temperature body to a body at lower temperature· in the form of electromagnetic waves when the bodies are separated in space even when a vacuum exists between them. In fact, radiation heat transfer occurs most efficiently in a vacuum. the best example of the radiation is the.heat received by the earth from the sun.
5
Introduction
The radiant energy waves coming from the sun towards earth passes through almost vacuum (generally called ether) and also throqgh the atmospheric layes smrounding the earth. Radiant energy travels at a speed of light (3 x 108 m/s). In fact, according to electromagnetic theory all types of rays and thermal radiation differ only in their respective wave lengths. Although, we focus primarily on radiation from solid surfaces, emission may also occur from liquids or gases. 1. 6 . Steady and Unsteady Heat Transrer
Like other physical phenomenon, heat exchange is also accompanied by spacetime variation of temperature. Mathematically, t =f (X, y, Z, 'r)
(1.1)
dt =Om .t =f(x,y,z ) dr
(1.2)
However, for the analysis of heat transfer problems, two types of heat transfer are consideredsteady and unsteady. In the case of steady state, the temperature at each point of the system remains constant in the course of time, and it is a function only of space coordinates. Mathematically, During such a process, heat exchange rate is constant and there is no change in the internal energy of the system. Some examples of steady state arerheat exchange from combustion products to water in the boiler, heat exchange process in all type of heat exchangers, etc.
In the case of unsteady state heat transfer, the temperature at each point in the system changes with time. This results in the change in the heat exchange rate with time. The internal energy of the system also varies. Mathematically,
(1.3)
dt  =I: 0, t = (x, y, z, r) dr
Examples of unsteady state heat transfer are the temperature variations of walls of building in a day, water cooling system of internal combustion engines, etc.
Besides this, the heat transfer may be in one, two or three crrections. This depends upon the configuration of the system considered. Mathematically, the above phenomenon may be expressed as follows:
One dimensional heat transfer Two dimensional heat transfer Three dimensional heat transfer
Steady
Unsteady
t =f(x) t = f (x, y)
t =f (x, i) t = f (x, y, r)
t = f (x, y, z)
t = f(x, y, z; r)
It is worthwhile to mention that in the beginning of any heat exchange process, it is unsteady but after certain time it becomes steady if all the governing parameters remain the samy: If governinip�ramcters vary, it remains unsteady. •

1. 7. Conservation of Energy
Since the subject of heat tramsfer is an extension of thermodynamics in that it considers the rate at which energy_is transported, hence it is useful to consider this law. This law may be applied in heat transfer by two approaches. They are as follows :
(a) Conservation of Energy for a Control Volume.ln a control volume approach (Fig. 1.1), it may be stated as follows:
The rate (lt which energy (thermal and mechanical) enters a control volume minus the rate at which this energy leaves the control volume must be equal to the rate at which this energy is stored. This may be written mathematically as follows:

(b) The Surface Energy Balance.In many situations, one has to apply the conservation of energy requirement at the surface of a medium. fa such cases, the control surface does not include mass or volume (e. g. wall exposed to air) hence generation E g and storage item, Es, do not exist. Mathematically, The above relation is valid for bothsteady and unsteady cases.

1. 8. Basic Law of Heat Conduction
The fundamen� law of heat conduction was proposed by the French scientist, J.BJ. Fourier in 1822. With reference to Fig. 1.2 one dimensional form of Fourier's law for solids states that the rate of heat flow by conduction in material is equal to the product of · three quantities namely:I;
(a) k, a property of the material known as thermal conductivity. (b) area A, normal to the direction of flow. (c) Jtl Jx
the temperature gradient at the section i.e., the rate of change of temperature t with respect to the distance x in the direcLion of heat flow.

In the above equation, negative sign has been arbitrarily affixed to make Q positive because of the fact that flow of heat always occurs in the direction of decreasing temperature, ie, the temperature gradient dtldx will always be negative.

Note that f or this case the temperature function t(x) in Fig. 1 .2. is linear.
In the transient state of heat conduction, the quantity of heat entering the leaving a volume element of the body is not the same at any given instant According to First law of thermodynamics this difference is used to increase the internal energy E of the element. Thus the internal energy change is given by

1. 9 General Heat Conduction Mechanism and Law
If we are interested to consider the conduction process in general, including conduction in very dense gases as well as in liquids and solids, we have to take into account the additional and differe!lt microscopic transport mechanisms. A classification of common mechanisms together with the materials in. which each mechanism is important is listed below :Degenerate electron gas diffusion (metals): Elastic phonon diffusion (all solids). , Classical theory for common liquids. Classical gas, molecular diffusi on · (gases, porous solids, electrons in semiconductors). (v) Radiation, electromagnetic photons (internal emission and reabsorption, perhaps continuous spectra).
(i) (ii) (iii) (iv)
It is worthwhile �ention that the �acr�scopically observed conduction characteristics of any material is the sum of all above effects (pl� others) which may be in operation.
Introduction

It is possible to discuss the transport of these microscopic mechanisms in terms of single general model, as follows.
Let us consider the x direction in a material in which an energy gradient (dtldx) exists. As shown in Fig. 1 .3 , this model assumes a number of points in the x direction, A apart (small in size), where A is equal to the distance over which an exchange by any mechanism is essentially complete. A would be the mean free path in a gas or absorption length for radiation. Let e 1 and e2 be the energies per unit volume at two adjacent points. Let v be the velocity of energy transport The net rate of energy flux in the positive x direction is given by de qx = ve1  ve2 =  v (e 2 =e 1 ) =  v H

a bond, the glue is to be maintamed at a temperature of 43°C for a considerable period of time. This is accomplished by a radiant heat source, applied uniformly over the surface of the plastic (k= 2.27 WlmK). The exposed sides of the cork and of the plastic have a heat transfer coefficient by convection of 11.6 Wlm2K, and the room temperature during the operation is 20°C. Neglecting heat losses by radiation from the sheets, calculate the rate at which heat must be supplied to the surface of the plastic to obtain the required temperature at the interface. The thermal resistance of the glue may be neglected. Also draw the thermal circuit for the system. Solution. Refer to Fig. 3.11.
Fig. 3.11. It is to be noted that both sidescork and plac;tic are exposed to room air. The plastic side is exposed to radiant heat source. A part of this heat supplied say q1 will transmit, through the plastic, glue and cork and finally it will be convected to air. Another part of this heat supplied s_�y q2 will directly convect to room air in the opposite direction of q 1 because of high temperature of plastic layer and low temperature of room air. t  ta t2  t3 t,  t2 =3 ql . = = R1 R2 Ra t2t3 t, t2 = 13 ,a or q = = , 1/h0A L/k1A L/k.zA

It is indirect method of cooling of blades by conducting heat from the blades to an internally cooled turbine rotor. The cooling of turbine blades problem comes under the the category of extended surfaces. Consider a turbine blade of length L shown in Fig. 5.7. Assume that the blade cross section area A and periphery P are the same at all spanwise stations x, the unit surface conductance h and effective gas temperature t are both uniform along P and and the temperature gradients in all blade sections are negligible.

The analog field plotter is an instrument which is easily used to obtain field distribution described by the twodimensional Laplace equation.
This plotter uses a thin sheet of electrically conducting paper and to the scaled shape of the heat conducting object (Fig. 6.8). An electrical current flow pattern can be established in the paper by means of a suitably attached and energized electrodes. Boundary conditions corresponding to isotherms are obtained in the electrical field by attaching copper wires to the paper or by painting the areas with highly conductive silver paint and then attaching an e.m.f. source. The plain edges of the conducting paper correspond to insulated surfaces in the temperature field. Nutt d e t ec t o r

Lines of constant voltage are obtained by moving the stylus (pointer) across the paper, making small perforations in the paper wherever the null detector indicates that the stylus is at a specified voltage. The voltage level of the particular potential being evaluated is established by choosing a slider position on the voltagedividing potentiometer of the null detector. Selecting equal increments in voltage makes adjacent perforation lines ana1ogus to isotherms separated by the same temperature difference. As the constantenergy flow lines are orthogonal to the potential lines the free hand sketch •of this is possible and the result will be a network of curvilinear squares as obtained in flux plotting. The constant flow lines can also be traced constant by simply reversing the conducting and insulating portions of the boundary. The other types of analogus are (i) Fluid flow analogy

6 . 5 . Finite Difference Method.
In multidimensional steady state circumstances, considerable mathematical difficulty arises and with complicated boundary conditions a useful solution by analytical methods are not possible. In order to overcome the mathematical difficulty various nu'merical methods have been cfeveloped which may be used to obtain approximate solutions. Among the numerical methods finite difference is one of them. Like all other numerical methods, this method is also particularly well suited for use with high speed digital computers. 6 . 6 . The Nodal Network and Finite Difference Form
In the analytical solution, the detennination of temperature is made at any point of i!}terest in a medium, whereas in a numerical solution the_detennination of temperature is possible at only discrete points. This suggests that the first step in any numerical analysis is to select these points. Suppose the medium of interest is a twodimensional heat conduction (Fig. 6.9). To select the discrete points, the medium of interest is subdivided into a number of small regions and a reference point of each is assigned at its center. The reference point is generally termed a nodal point or simply a node and. the aggregate of points is tenned as nodal network or mesh. For the general expression of a numerical approach to a problem, it is often convenient to adopt an indexing system which attaches a unit subscript to each point say i, j, k (tr, ;, , ) denoting x, y and z directions. For two dimensional system z tenn will be absent.

For any interior node of a twodimensional system with no generation and unifonn thermal conductivity, the exact form of governing equation (6. 1) is approximated in t,he finite difference form as follows.

It is worth to note that each node represents a certain region and its temperature is a ml:!asure of the average temperature of the region, e.g., the temperature of node i.j. Fig. 6.9 may be viewed as the average temperature of the surounding shaded area. It is to be noted that the selection of the nodal points is rarely arbitrary depending often on matters such as geometric convenience and the desired accuracy. For higher accurary a large number of points are chosen.
Equation (6.15) is the approximate algebric equation a finite difference form of exact differential equation. This approximate, finite difference form of the heat equation may be applied to any interior node which is equidistant from its four neighbouring nodes. This equation reveals that sum of the temperatures associated with the neighbouring nodes should be equal to four times the temperature of the node of interest. Equation (6.16) is really a summation of the condution heat entering the node whose temperature is t;, i' This reveals that either equation (6.15) or (6.16) is derived from one of Kirchhoffs electrical laws written In its thermal analog. In other words the algebric sum of all heat flowing to a point must be equal to zero. Thus. UJ = O.
The equation (6.15) may also be obtained by performing an energy balance on an interior node. With the help of nodal energy balance, the finite difference form for node at a plane surface with convections (e.g. nodes 7 and 8 of problem 6.4) is given by Table . 6.2.

This suggest that the nondimensional temperature distributions is the functions of three dimensionless parameters as discussed below :(i) Fourier number, F0 (a r /L�) : It indicates how rapidly a solid is cooled or
heated. For small values of a/L � , a large time r is required to obtain a significant "' temperature change. (ii) Biot number, B; (h Lc fk): It indicates the ratio of the resistance to_ heat transfer· at the surface of a solid to that within the internal body. It is similar to Nu (Nusselt number) used in convective heat transfer. (iii) Dimensionless length parameter, x/Le : It indicates the distance of any location from an arbitrary origine as compared to the characteristics length (plate thickness). For. circular and sphere , this parameter will be (r/ro) , Using the above nondimensional numbers , Heisler have prepared many charts (Figs. 7.13 to 7.18) for the determination of temperatwe history.

Rotating Gas Turbine Bladis
Fig. 13.8 shows the cooling of gas turbine blades by free convection proposed by Prof. Schmidt. Holes are drilled into the blades from the root and are closed at the ends near the tip by leaving some material during drilling. The coolant is supplied from the root of the blade and the coolant is subject¢ to a centrifugal acceleration Rm 0} where Rm is the'mean radius of the blade measured from the centre of the shaft and ro is the angular velocity of the rotating blades. The coolent passing through the drilled holes · is heated due to the IJl3at transfer from the hot gases flowing through the blade channel. The heated ::oolani rises upward. This motion of c.oolant is similar to the flow over a vertical plate �xcept 1!1e absence of gravitational fi�ld and presence._of e�ntrifqgaJ,.action. Thus the Gr number IS replaced Gr =

But in many situations, the fluid changes its phase during convective heat transfer processes. Boiling and condensation are such convective heat transfer processes that are associated· with change in the phase of fluid. In this chapter, we focus our attention on boiling and condensation. During boiling, there is a heat transfer from solid surface to liquid which results in change of phase form liquid to vapor state. Conversely, condensation of a vapor to liquid state results in heat transfer to the solid surface. There are many unique features of these.processes. Since there is a phase change in these processes hence the heat transfer to or from the fluid can occure without influencing the fluid temperature. Due to latent heat effect associated with the phase change heat transfer coefficients and rates are g_enerally much higher than those of convective heat transfer processes without phase change. The most unique feature is the achievement of high heat transfer rate with small temperature difference. Boiling and condensation processes find a large number of applications in many engineering problems. These are as follows: (a) boilers and condensers used in thermal and nuclear power plants and other industrial applications. (b) nuclear reactors, spacecrafts and rockets (c) evaporators and condensers used in refrigerating and airconditloning systems. (d) process heating and cooling (e) melting of metal in furnaces (f) heat exchangers used in refineries and sugar mills (g) concentration, dehydration and drying of foods and materials. Due to two phase flow phenomenon, the analysis of these processes is quite difficult (A) Boiling 14.1. Physical Mechanisms of Boiling Evaporation at a solidliquid surface is termep boiling. This is possible only when the temperature of the surface, t5 exceeds the saturation temperature corresponding to the liquid pressure tsat. Newton's law of cooiing is applied in this case as
q =h A. ( t5 tsat ) = h A. Me where 6.te = t5 t sat and is termed as excess temperature. The boiling process involves the formation of vapor bubbles, which grow and subsequently detach form the surface. The growth of vapor bubble and its dynamics depend in a complex manner on the excess temperature (AtJ, the nature of the surface and other thermophysical properties such as its surface ten:;ion. Literatures [14.1 to 14.3) discuss in details about this field of heat transfer.

Boiling may occure in the folliwing forms:
·~·,
(i) Pool boiling : This refers to a situation in 'Yhich the liquid above the hot surface is essentially quiescent and its motion near the surface is due to free convection and to mixing induced by bubble growth and (jetachmenL This type of boiling occurs in steam boilers involving natural convection. (ii) Forced convection boiling : In this case, the fluid motion is induced by external means, as well as by free convection and bubble induced mixing. The liquid is pumped and forced to flow. Boiling of water in water tube boilers inv�ving forced convection is an example of this type of boiling. (iii) Subcooled or local boiling : In this type of boiling, the temperature of liquid is below the saturation temperature and bubbles form in the vicinity of the heated surface. These bubbles travel a short path and eventually condense in the liquid which is at a temperature less than boiling point. {iv) Saturated boiling; The temperature of the liquid exceeds the saturation temperature. Bubbles formed at the solid surface (liquidsolid interface) are then propelled through the liquid by buoyancy effects, eventually escaping from a free surface (liquidvapor interface). The physical mechanisfll� �ill be more clear in the subsequent article " boiling regimes". 1 4.2: Boiling Regimes of Saturated Pool Boiling There exists a definite boiling regimes assoc�aced with saturated pool, boiling or forced circulation boiling. Fig. 14.1 shows the tem�rature distribution in saturated pool boiling with liquidvapor interface. It is abvious from the_ figure that altho� th�re is a sharp decline _in _the liq�id temperature close to the sohd surface, the tempera1ute through most of the hqmd remams slightly above saturation. Bubbles generated at the liquidsolid interface therefore rises to and are transported across the liquidvapor interface. To understand this physical mechanism, let us examine the boiling curve as shown in Fig. 14.2 (a). . .. ·. : ... . ·. . \ : ...· . ......· : ::

Heat and Mass Transfer
The boiling curve shown in Fig. 14.2 (a) pertains to . water and can be obtained by considering an electrically . �eated horizoJ!tal wire submerged in a pool of water at saturation temperture. Similar · ' ·;trend is found with other fluids. Basically three different regims are clearly seen. ' (i)_ Interface evaporation or free convection boiling : The boiling starts in a thin layer of liquid which is in the vicinity of heated surface without bubble formation. This happens when flte ::;; flte , A where flte , A . "' 5°C.The liquid in the vicinity of solid surface becomes superheated (i.e. liquid temperature higher than saturated temperature at a given pressure ) and rises to, liquid vaporinterface where evaporation takes place. The fluid motion is determined principally br free convection effects. It is to be noted that the value of convective heat transfer . coefficient is much larger than that associated with free convection without phase change. This termed as.first stage of boiling; (ii) Nucleate boiling: It exists in the range, Me, A ::;; Me s Me c where Me c = 50°C and comprises of second and third stage. Wheri liquid is over heated the vapor bubbles are formed at certain favourable spots termed nucleation or active sites, these may be wall surface irregularities, air bubbles and foreign particles. The bubbles grow to a certain size influenced by pressure, temperature and surface tension at the liquidvapor interface. Depending upon the temperature excess, the bubbles may collapse on the surface, may expand and detatch from the surface to be dissipated in the_ OO?Y �f the liq�id or_ at _sufficientir high tempe�ture may ri� to the surface of bqu1d before bemg d1ss1pated. This whole process results.m increased value of h and 'q;. During local boiling (i.e. second stage), the primary mec_hanism of heat transfer is due to igtense agitation at the heat transfer is surface which creates a high heat transfer rate. In saturated or bulk boiling (Le.third stage}, the bubbles may break away from the surface because of buoyancy action and,, . move into the body of the liquid. Theref9re, it is both the agitation caused by �·� bubbles and vapor transport of energy into the body of the liquid influence the heat . transfer rate. The maximum heat flux, q;, max or q;: c generally termed as the critical heat flux and is in excess of / MW/ m2 corresponds to point C. As the name implies, this point. is very critical and n(}ed.'further discussion. We have seen that the high heat transfer rates and convective heat transfer coefficients are associated with small value·s of excess temperature, it is desirable to operate many enginerring devices in the regime of nucleate boiling. The value of h in excess of 104 W/m2 K for water is the characteristics of this regime . which is much higher than those corresponding to convection without phase change. (iii) Film boiling: This comprises of fourth, fifth and sixth state of boiling'. Transition boiling, unstable film boiling or partial flim boiling (i.e., fourth stage) is found for M e, c � flte , � flte , o , where l!.te , D = 150°C.ln this zone, the bubble formation is so rapid that a vapor film or blanket begins to form on the surface.

At any point on the surface, conditions may oscillate between film and nu�leate boiling. Film boiling (i.e. fifth stage for M e �. M e , D.

Critical heat flux or Burnout Point : It is worthwhile to discuss in detail about the critical heat flux. The point of maxim� heat flux on the boiling curve initiates the transition from nucleate to film boiling and is termed as critical heat flux or burnout point. The whole boiling process remains in the unstable state beycz_nd the burnount point C, until situation corresponds to point F on the boiling curve. Any increase in q /' beyond the burnout point will induce a departure form the boiling curve in which t,he surface condition changes form ilte . c to llte . F• i.e. a large increase surface temperature . In general, t_. • F exceeds the melting point of solid, hence destruction or failure of the wall surface may occure. For this r�n. point C is often termed as boiling crisis or burnount point. We may be interested to operate. a heat transfer surface close to this value but it is not wise to exceed it. Fig. 14.2 (b)' shows the boiling of methanol on a horizontal tube.

Bubble Shape and Size ConsidP.ration
It is interesting to note that the shape, size or inelination of bubbles do not influence much the heat transfer rate in nucleate boiling. On the other hand, the heat transfer rate is greatly influenced by the nature and condition of the heating surface and the surface tension at the solidliquid interface. The surface tension is a measure of wetting capability (i.e low surface tension, highly wetted surface) of the surface with the liquid. Fig. 14.3 shows the three typical shape of vapor bubbles signifiying different wetting characteristics. On the unwetted surface. (Fig. 14.3 a), the bubbles spread out, forming a wedge between the water and l,eating surface, thereby allowing hydrostatic forces to resist the action of buoyancy. In the case of partial wetted surface, (Fig. 14.3b) the angle of contact is smaller than that for unwetted surface which reduces the area occupied by vapor bubbles thereby increasing the heat transfer area. If the surface tension is !ow (or roughness counteracts the surfac� tension). the surface becomes fully wetted. as shown in Fig. 14.3 (c). The liquid tends to push away and shear of the bubbles causing them to become globular or oval and leave the surface while still very small. This situation is the most desirable aspect for large heat transfer rate because of minimum area covered by the insulating vapor film. Addition of agents to reduce the surface tension has been found · have the same effect as providing a wettable surface to give large heat transfer xate. Vapor a

Fig. 14.3. Typical Shapes of Steam Bubbles. � 14.4. Bubble Growth and Collapse Experimental evidences in nucleate boiling show that vapor bubbles are not always in thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding liquid. In other words, the vapor inside the bubble is not necessarily at the same temperature as that liquid. Consider the forces acting on a spherical vapor bubble. The pressure forces of the liquid and vapor must be balanced by the surfacetension force at the vaporliquid interface. The pressure force acts on an area of n r2 and the surface tension acts on the interface length of 2nr: Making force balance, we get tr r2 (p,.  Pi ) = 2 tr r (1

.. :f�,. 4'\ ;. ,.
a Fig. 14.4 Force Balance on a Vapor Bubble In the light of above expression, the physical explanation of vapor growth and collapse may be given as follows : Consider a vapor bubble in pressure equilibruim (i.e. ·neither growing nor collapsing). Assume the temperature of the vapor inside the bubble is the saturation temperature corresponding to tl,e pressure p (Fig. 14.4). If the liquid is. at the saturation 11 temperature corresponding to the pressure p1 , · it is below the. temperature inside the bubble. As a result of this heat must be conducte! out of the bubble, the vapor inside must condense, and the bubble must collapse. This type of collapsing of bubble occurs on the heating surface or in the body Qf liquid. In order for the bubble to grow and escape to the surface thev must receive heat from the liauid. This condition is satisfied only
Boiling and Condensation

when the liquid is in superheated condition so that the temperature·of the liquid is gi�ter than the. vapor temperature inside the bubble. This corresponds to the metastable condition of nucleate boiling. Though the process of bubble growth is complex in nature, however a simple qualitative explanation of the physical mechanism may be put forward in the following way. The growth of vapor bubble starts when heat is conducted to the liquidvapor interface from the liquid. Consequently evaparation then takes place at the interface, thereby increasing the total vapor volume. If the liquid pressure; p1 remains contant, eq. (14.1) suggests that the pressure inside the bubble must be reduced. The reduction in pressure inside the bubble will result in a reduction in the vapor temperature and larger temperature difference between the liquid and vapor if the bubble stay at its same spatial position in the liquid. However, the bubble will likely rise from the heated surface and the farther away it moves, the lower the liquid temperature will be. There is always � chance for the bubbles to move into a region where the liquid temperature is below tha1. of the vapor. Once this happensheat will be conducted out and the bubbles will collapse. From the above, it follows that the bubble gowth process may reach a balance at some ,ccation in the liquid or if the liquid is superheated enough, the bubbles may rise to the surface before being dissipated. 14.5 Critical Diameter of Bubble The following paramteres are responsible for the maximum diameter of the bubble fonned on the heating surface.

Fig. 14.6 Effect of Metal on Nucleate Boiling (b ) Material, shape and condition of (he heating surface : The material of the hcar.1 r\f  . surface affects greatly the boiling heat transfer coefficient. As shown in Fig. 14.1.1 f under identical conditions the boiling heat transfer coefficient is different fc,; : �•· different metals, copper has high value than steel, zinc and chromium. The condition of the heating surface also influencs the heat transfer rates. A rough surface yields a better heat transfer rates as compared to smoth or coated surface. This i� because of the fact the smothness weaknes the metal tendency to. get wetted. Similarly, the shape of the heating surface also affect the heat transmission. (c ) Liquid properties ; It has been confirmed by experiments that the bubble size increase with the dynamic viscosity of the liquid. The increase in bubble size reduces the frequency of bubble formations which in tum reduces the heat transfer rate. In other words, the heat reduces the heat transfer rate. In other words, the heat transfer coefficient increases with the initial temperature of liquid. Further, high thermal coductivity of the liquid induces the heat transfer rates. (d ) Mechanical agitation : Experiments have cofinned that the rate of heat transfer increases as the degree of agitation increases. 14.7. Forced Convection Boiling
When a liqu.d is forced to flow through a heated tube the boiling from the inner surface of the tube is termed as forced convection boiling. The flow velocity strongly influences the bubble growth and the hydrodynamic effects are significantly different tha:1 those corresponding to pool boiling.
Boiling and Condensation
489
Fig. 14.7 shows the flow regimes for forced convection boiling inside a tube. When the liquid enters heated tube, initially the liquid remains in subcooled fonn and the heat transfer to this subcooled liquid is initialy by forced convection and may be predicted from the convection correlations. However, boiling is soon initiated with bubbles appearing at the surface growing and being carried into the mainstream of the liquid. In the bubble flow regime, there is a·sharp increase in the convection heat transfer coefficient. With the increase of the volume fraction of the vapor individual bubbles coalesce to fonn plugs or slugs of vapor designated as slug flow regime. This is followed by an annula r flow regime in which the liquid fonns a film. This film moves along the inner surface while vapor moves at a faster velocity through the core of the tube. Starting fonn the forced convection. the heat transfer coefficient continues to increase through bubbly flow and . annular flow regimes. Immediately after the annular flow regimes dry spots start appearing on the inner surface and the heat transfer coefficient begins to decrease. The transition regime is characterised by the growth of the spots until the surface is completely dry and all remaining liquid is in the fonn of droplets appearing in the vapor core. The heat transfer coefficient continues to decrease through this regime. This regime is followed by the mistflow regime which persists until all the droplets are converted into vapor which is then superheated by forced convection from the surface, There is a slight increase in the heat transfer coefficient during this regime. A vast literature [2022] • is available on this topic.

Effectiveness by Using Number of Transfer Units (NTU) In the preceding section, we have discussed the definition of effectiveness of a heat exchanger in terms of inlet and outlet temperatures. It is worthwhile to derive expressions for effectiveness which may be free from outlet temperature terms and hence be useful for the design of heat exchangers. In the heat exchanger design, heat capacity terms and NTU are important parameters and here effort is made to express effectiveness in these terms. For this, let us consider two type of heat exchangersparallel flow a• · • counter flow.

The water enters the condenser at 20°C and leaves at 75°C. Steam condenses on the outside surface of the tube. The overall heat transfer coefficient is expected to be 250 W/m2K.

Take the latent heat of vaporisation at 100°C, hfg= 2261 kJ/kg. Solution. Throughout condenser the hot fluid (i.e. steam), remains at constant temperature.

16.8 Heat Exchanger ;Design .Con�iderations In the selection or design of a heat exchanger, following considerations are almost always made (a) Heat transfer requirements (b) Cost (c) Physical size (d) Pres.suredrop characteristics The way that the requirements are met depends on the relative merits placed on items. (b) to (d) above. In order to increas� the overall heat transfer coefficient, the fluids may be forced at higher velocities but tllis higher velocity results in a larger pressure drop through the exchanger, meaning larger pumping costs. If the pressure drop is to keep minimum, the surface area of the exchanger will be larger due to lower value of overall heat transfer coefficient but there is a limit of physical size that can be accommodated, and mor.eo\er, a larger physical sizeresults in higher costs. This suggests that a correct compromise between all the these conflicting factors will lead to the proper design of a heat exchanger. 16. 9. Som e Constn,1cti'onal and Thermal Aspects of. Heat Exchanger Design. (A) Shell and Tube Type (a) Tubes : Heat exchanger tubes are available in a variety of metals and sizes, The materials include steel, copper, admiralty, Muntz metal, brass, 7030 copper nickel, aluminum bronze, aluminum and stainless steels. The wall thickness of a tube is usually· defined by Brirmingham wire gauge (BWG) and is available in variety of forms. A large number of sizes of tubes are available which are listed in Appendix. The most common sizes include 1.905 cm O.D. arid l.54 cm O.D. The flow velocity through tubes may · ·' range from 1 to 2·m/s. (b) Tube Pitch : The tubes are hold by the two tubes sheet placed at both ends. ,The tube holes in the tube sheet should not be very close to each other otherwise it will weaken the tube sheet. In general, tubes are laid out on either square or triangular patterns as shown in Fig. 16.38. The square pitch offers the advantages of accessibility of tubes �

for external deaning and lower pressure drop when fluid fl�s in the direction indicated. In square p:tch, the velocity of the fluid undergoes continuous fluctuation because of the constructed area between adjacent tubes compared with the flow area between successive rows. Triangular pitch officers ·even greater turbulence because the fluid flowing between adjacent tubes at high velocity impinges directly on the succeeding row. This means that ignoring the pressure ctr.op and cleanability, the triangular pitch is superior for attainment of high shell side heat transfer coefficient and the in&ase in heat transfer coefficient under comparative conditions may be 25 per cent greater than for square pitch.
The values of tube pitch, PT for square and triangulat arrangements of 1.905 cm OD and 2.54 cm. OD tubes are 2.54 cm. and 3.175 cm respectively. The square arrangement may be rotated by 45° , It is possible to have the triangle arrangement with cleaning lanes by spreading the tubes wide enough. (c) Shells. Shells of heat exchangesbasically fall in the category of.pressure vessels, and therefore designed as a thick or thin cylinders. The smaller size of shell (up to 30 .cm) is fabricated from steel pipe. Above 30 cm and including 61 cm. the actual side diameter and the nominal pipe diameter are the same. For shells operating under pressure up to 22 bar, the standard wall thickness with inside diameters from 30 cm to 61 cm inclusive _is 0.952 cm. For operating pressure above 22 bar, the greater wall thickness may be taken. Shells above 61 cm in diameter are fabricated by rolling steel plate. Generally, shells are of cylindrical shapes but the big size condenser of power plant may be of rectangular shapes.
(d) Tube Sheet. Due to temperature difference between tubes and shell thermal stress sets up between them. These are various methods to reduce this thermal stresses and accordingly the exchangers are generally classified. In general, two basic fo�s of tube sheets are used to reduce thennal stress. They are � (i) Fixed tube sheet
(ii) Floating tube sheet Each of the tube sh�et arrangement has various designs. In one of fixed tube sheet arrangement, admiralty metal tubes are rolled into an integral sheet and shell hub which is silversoldered to the shell. The tube bundle is not removable, hence this construction is only for those �ases in which the fluid in the shell does not seriously foul the tubes. In the cases, where there is a change of severe thermal stresses due to large difference in temperature between the shell and tubes, afloating head (or sheet) design is used. Fig. 16.39 shows such a construction in which the different parts of an exchanger are listed.

In most of shell and tube heat exchangers baffJes are used to produce turbulence. The passes in tubes or shell side may be more than one � (e) Baffles. it is a well k9own fact that with the presence of tw;bulence in ijquid the heat transfer coefficient increases. In order to induce turbulence ·outside the tubes, baffles are employed which cause the liquid to flo\\ through the shell at right angles•to !he axis of tubes. This results in the creation of considerable turbulence · even wnen u . small quantity,::of liquiq flows through th� tube. Numbe� of baffles to be provided. in the exchanger depends upon many factors such as length ·of the shell, degree of turbulence, etc: The centre to center distance between the b'affles is called the baffle pitch. The baffle size varies from onefifth of the inside.shell diameter to the inside snell diameter. In order to hold securely the baffles, baffle spacers are used which consists of throughbolts screwed into the tube sheet and a number of smaller lengths of pipe which form shoulders . between adjacent baffles. Thoug.h, tl)ere are severa( types of baffles but the most common are segment al baffles which are drilled.plates with height equivalent to threeforth of the inside diameter of the shell, Such baffles are known as 25 percent cut off baffles. Other 1 types of baffles include disc and doughtnut and orifice plate. ' .

on 3.175 cm triangular pitch arranged for six tube passes. It is worthwhile to note that tubes are not usually laid out symmetrically in the tube sheet. In order to minimise the contraction effect of the fluid entering the shell, extra space is usually allowed in the shell by omitting tubes ,directly under the inJet nozzle. When tubes are laid out with minimum space allowances bet:ween partitions and adjoining tubes and. within a diameter of free obstruction called ilie out er t ube limit , the number of tubes in the layout is the tube count . It is desirable to hav� _equal number, of tubes in each passe but it is not always possible ; however the unabi,nce should not be more than 5 percent.
(g) Shell Side Heat Transfer Coefficient . The shell side heat transfer coefficient depends on baffle spacing type of pitch, tubes size, clearance and fluid flow characteristics. To find the Reynolds number of flow in the shell, it is essential to know the expression for hydraulic or equivalent diameter. The equivalent diameter for square pitch is D = e

Hence the statement of the Kirchoffs is law is proved. Note that the same method may be applied for Kirchoffs law based on total values. 1 7 . 6 . Intensity of Radiation an d its Relations In the previous articles, we have observed that the radiation emitted by a surface propagates in all possible directions. In addition, radiation incident upon a surface may come from different directions. We are often interested in knowing the directional , distribution of the emission and irradiation and that may be studied by introducing the concept of radiation intensity. 17.6.1. Solid Angle. Before defining intensity of radiation, let us first define a new term called solid angle. Consider emission of radiation in a particular direction from an elemental area dA I as shown in Fig. 11. 10 which also depicts the spherical coordinate system. The zenith angle, 8 and azimuthal angle, IP of the spherical coordinates system specify the direction of emission. Assume that this radiation passes through a differential �mall surface area in space, dA ,. (i.e .. area normal to 8 , IP direction) which subtends a solid angle dm, when viewed from a point on dA 1 • The differential solid angle d(J) (Fig. 17.11) is defined by a region between the 'rays of a sphere and is measured as the ratio of the element ofarea d4,. on the sphere to the square of the sphere's radius. Mathematically,
d4,. ( 17.31) r2 It is worthwhile to note.that the differential area dA,. represents an area that is no.mat to the ( 8,IP) direction. dro

1 7 .19. Solar Radiation. The fear that the energy sources (fossile fuels) on the earth may be exhausted in the coming years has directed the attention of the world to use solar radiation which is an inexhaustible energy source. Today world is passing through an energy crisis. Hence it is essential that we should· go for the solar energy. Solar radiation is at present not used directly for industrial purposes because its concentration is lo":'.. However, in recent years, researches are going on extensively to use solar radiation

as an alternative energy source. Now it is possible to use solar radiation for heating houses, distilling fresh water from sea, cooling homes, etc. Electricity is also being generated by the use of solar thennal energy but its capacity is low. Various types of solar collectors and absorbers have been developed. Solar radiation is also an important factor in the evaluation of heating or cooling requirement for aircraft, missiles and buildings.
(i) The Solar Resource. The sun is nearly spherical radiation source whose radius is r0 = 0.695 x 109 m and located 1.50 x 102 m from the earth. Within its inner core (r �.23 r0), there is a continuous fusion process in which mass is converted into energy resulting in the release of tremendous heat energy and thereby maintaining the temperatures of the inner core from 8 x 106 K to 40 x 106 K. The fusion process produces X ray and Y ray electromagnetic radiatlon which emanate from the high density core. In the low density gaseous region called convective zone (0.7r0 � �r0) energy is also transported by convection. It is believed that temperature drops from about 1.3 x 106 K to SOOK through this convective zone. The outer iayer of convection zone which is called photosphere is essentially opaque and well defined. Three gaseous layers lie outside the photosphere, with temperature ranging from about SOOOK within the inner layer to as high as 106 K in the outer layer. Solar radiation consists of energy that is emitted by various layers of the sun, with major contribution being provided by the photosphere. It is to be noted that although the radiation emitted by the sun originates from the various temperature zones for practical purposes, the sun can be regarded as a black body emitter at an effective temperarure of about 5800K. Using this value of the sun temperature the effecti.ve total emissive power of the sun may be calculated as ESU/1 = CJ'T:,, = 5.67 x I 08 (5800)4 = 6.416 x 107 W/m2
Out of this enormous solar radiation flux, only a small fraction reaches the outer fringes of the earth's atmosphere, and an even 'smaller portion reaches the surface of the earth itself. Fora horizontal surface outside the earth's atmosphere, solar radiation appears as a beam of nearly parallel rays that form an angle 0, the zenith angle, relative to the surface normal. The .extraterrestrial solar irradiation, Gs0 depends on the geographic latitude, as well as the time of the day and year. It is expressed as G.s0= G., .f. cos0 (17.98) where G� called the solar constant, is defined as the flux of solar energy incident on a �urface oriented normal to the sun's rays, when the earth is at its mean distance from the sun. The value of solar constant, G., = 1353 W/m2. The . term f is a correction factor to account for the eccentricity of the earth's orbjt about the sun and its value ranges from 0.97 to 1.03.
Fig. 17.35 shows distribution of the monochromatic extraterrestrial solar irra_diation ( Gs0h and monochromatic solar irradiation on the earth surface, G e,.• The radiation is concentrated in the !ow, wavelength region (0.2��3µm) of the thermal spectrum with the peak occurring at about 0.5 µm.
The solar irradiation flux experiences a significant changes while passing through atmosphere before it reaches the  surface of the earth mainly due to absorption and scattering. The atmospheric gases such as ozone (03), oxygen (Oi), carbon dioxide (COi) and water vapor (H20) absorb the .radiation and that lowers down the radiation reaching the

earth �urface. The ab�orption by ozone is strong in UV region. In the visible region, ther� 1s some abs_orp�on by ozone and oxygen, and in the near and far infr•� the maximum absorption 1s by water vapor.
In addition, there is also continuous absorption of radiation by the dust and aerosal content of the atmosphere throughout the solar spectrum.
There are two types of atmospheric scattering namelyRayleigh and Mie, as shown in Fig. 17.36. Atmospheric gas molecules is responsible for Rayleigh scattering which is also known as molecular scattering. This scattering of radiation is uniform in all directions and hence approximately half of the scattered radiation is redirected back to space, while the remaining portion strikes the surface of the earth. The scattering of radiation due to dust and aerosol particles of the atmosphere is known as Mie or particles scattering. This is concentrate,.• (2 n''f f 9
