Theoretical analysis of the viscosity correction factor for heat transfer in pipe flow

Abstract:

In most heat transfer applications, knowledge of the viscosity variation is important. Thus viscosity correction factors have been researched and proposed for almost a century. One of the most successful relations was reported by Sieder-Tate in 1936, which has been widely used in engineering analysis and design. In this study, we have improved on the Sieder-Tate relation, following a classical theoretical analysis of the thermal boundary layer. An exact solution to the viscosity correction fa...
