Simple models for laminar thermally developing slug flow in non-circular ducts and channels

Abstract:

Solutions to the classical Graetz slug or plug flow problem in non-circular ducts are examined. These solutions have applications where a constant uniform velocity distribution exists across a channel or duct. These are most often realized in the laminar flow of low Prandtl number liquids, such as liquid metals, and low Reynolds number flows through porous media. Expressions are developed for a number of applications using the asymptotic correlation method of Churchill and Usagi. These expres...
