This week on the Volupe blog we introduce the latest addition to our “CFD Handbook” – a summary of empirical correlations for convective heat transfer coefficients. The aim is to give a comprehensive overview of some of the most commonly used empirical correlations for different types of standardized cases. To reach the page, you navigate to “Support -> CFD Handbook -> Empirical Correlations for Convective Heat Transfer Coefficients”, or simply follow this link:
Below is a snippet from the webpage, showing the standardized case of natural convection on inclined surfaces.
We hope this addition to the handbook will come to great use when performing or evaluating your thermal analyses. As always you are welcome to send in any questions or feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
