Heat transfer in the flow of a cold, axisymmetric jet over a hot sphere
Shu, Jian Jun
Date of Issue2013
The heat-transfer characteristics of thin film flow over a hot sphere resulting from a cold vertical jet of liquid falling onto the surface have been investigated. The underlying physical features have been illustrated by numerical solutions of high accuracy based on the modified Keller box method. The solutions for film thickness distribution are good agreement with those obtained approximately by using the Pohlhausen integral momentum technique and observed experimentally by using water as working fluid, thus providing a basic confirmation of the validity of the results presented.
