Abstract:
ABSTRACT Through systematic experimentation, heterogeneous heat transfer phenomenon of forced convection over a flat plate is pursued. The study primarily intends understanding of the implications of key controlling parameters viz., plate orientation, heat source power input and enclosure effects with the aid of heat transfer coefficient. Experiments were performed on a forced convection experimental setup comprising of an aluminium flat plate with five equidistant thermocouples embedded in it. The heat transfer characteristics were analyzed for rough surface facing upward in a confined passage. Results show that heat transfer coefficient behaves significantly diverse with varying surface orientation and heat input. The heat transfer rates rises monotonically with varying surface orientation and drops with heat input, both followed by a gradual descent. Increased heat supply transmits more heat transfer and hot surfaces are predicted to lose heat faster when oriented more in horizontal state however, heat transfer rates are found to be sensitive to a critical value after which the variable rate drops. The effect of enclosure is established to enhance reduction in the transfer of heat with orientation. Keywords:- Forced convection, rough flat plate, air, heat transfer coefficient, enclosure.
