|Abstract:||In heating, cooling or drying applications involving large temperature differences between the jet and the target surface, it is necessary to incorporate the temperature-dependence of fluid properties on the flow and temperature fields. Despite their frequent occurrence in industrial practice, there is little research reported in the literature on this subject. It is also necessary to distinguish between heating and cooling applications since the thermo-physical properties of the fluid in the vicinity of the target surface vary in different directions for the two cases. The objective of this work is to present computational fluid dynamic model results for heat transfer for heat transfer under a semi-confined slot turbulent jet under thermal boundary conditions such that the temperature-dependence of the fluid properties affects the flow and thermal fields. A comparative analysis in the turbulent flow regimes is made of the standard k-ε and Reynolds stress turbulence models for constant target surface temperature. Nusselt number distributions with different definitions of Nusselt number were compared. The results show that, under large temperature differences between the jet and the target surface, the Nusselt number calculated at jet temperature shows the least spread. Results are consistent with the very limited experimental results available in the literature.|
