    Research on convective heat transfer coefficient around a rod bundle has many diverse applications in industry. So far, many studies have been conducted in correlations related to internal and turbulent fully-developed flow. Comparison shows that Dittus-Boelter, Sieder-Tate and Petukhov have so far been the most practical correlations in fully-developed turbulent fluid flow heat transfer. The present study conducts an experimental examination of the validity of these frequently-applied correlations and introduces a manufactured test facility as well. Due to its generalizibility, the unique geometry of this test facility (hexagonal arranged, 7 vertical rods in a hexagonal tube) can fulfil...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jafarpoor Chekab, Hamideh (Author) ; Shafii, Mohammad Behshad (Supervisor) ; Saidi, Mohammad Hassan (Supervisor) ; Saeedi, Mohammad Saeed (Supervisor)
    Modern microelectronic systems generate a large amount of heat which must be transferred out of the system without excessive temperature rise. Conventional forced air convection and microchannel cooling plates have reached their performance limits Nanofiuids are proposed as an innovative way to solve the problem. A nanofiuid is nanoscale solid particles dispersed in a traditional heat transfer liquid. Some studies show an anomalous increase in the thermal conductivity for stationary nanofiuids. However, there are only few previous studies on the convection heat transfer rate and viscosity of nanofiuids. Both convection and stationary measurements of the thermal conductivity are widely... 

    Evaluation of pressure effect on heat transfer coefficient at the metal-mold interface for casting of A356 al alloy

    , Article Iranian Journal of Materials Science and Engineering ; Volume 9, Issue 1 , 2012 , Pages 11-20 ; 17350808 (ISSN) Fardi Ilkhchy, A ; Varahraam, N ; Davami, P ; Sharif University of Technology
    During solidification and casting in metallic molds, the heat flow is controlled by the thermal resistance at the casting-mold interface. Thus heat transfer coefficient at the metal-mold interface has a predominant effect on the rate of heat transfer. In some processes such as low pressure and die-casting, the effect of pressure on molten metal will affect the rate of heat transfer at least at initial steps of solidification. In this study interfacial heat transfer coefficient at the interface between A356 alloy casting and metallic mold during the solidification of casting under pressure were obtained using the IHCP (Inverse Heat Conduction Problem) method. Temperature measurements are then... 

    A computational model for heat transfer coefficient estimation in electric arc furnace

    , Article Steel Research International ; Volume 87, Issue 3 , 2016 , Pages 330-338 ; 16113683 (ISSN) Logar, V ; Fathi, A ; Škrjanc, I ; Sharif University of Technology
    Wiley-VCH Verlag  2016
    The paper studies the effects of solid and liquid steel properties on the heat transfer coefficient (HTC) in electric arc furnaces (EAFs). Mathematically speaking, the HTC is a function of solid and liquid steel properties. Different velocities of the bath cause different flow paths around the solid particles and therefore different HTCs - a computational issue that has not been addressed yet. Therefore, a simplified calculation model is proposed, intended for HTC estimation according to the EAF conditions. Although many studies investigated this topic, most of them either assume unconventional conditions for the EAF operation, are computationally complex or focus on a specific case; and...

    , Article Proceedings of the Intersociety Energy Conversion Engineering Conference ; Volume 2 , 2000 , Pages 1261-1267 ; 0146955X (ISSN) Sadeghipour, M. S ; Razi, Y. P ; Sharif University of Technology
    The laminar natural convection from an isothermal horizontal cylinder confined between vertical walls is investigated by experimental and numerical methods. The experimental and numerical data are well correlated, independently, to equations which give the average Nusselt number in terms of the wall spacing to cylinder diameter ratio, t/D, and the Rayleigh number, Ra, for two different values of the wall height to cylinder diameter ratios, H/D=7 and 15.2. For the low Rayleigh numbers considered (Ra<1000), there are certain conditions for the confining walls under which heat transfer from the cylinder is maximum. Results are compared with the reported numerical and/or experimental results...

    Modelling of Pressure Effect on Metal/Mold Interface Resistance in the A356 Aluminium Alloy Casting Process

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Fardi Ilkhchy, Ali (Author) ; Davami, Parviz (Supervisor) ; Varahram, Naser (Supervisor)
    The computer simulation of freezing patterns in castings has done much to broaden our understanding of casting and mold system design. The structural integrity of shaped castings is closely related to the time–temperature history during solidification, and the use of casting simulation could do much to increase this knowledge in the foundry industry. However, some uncertainties must be eradicated, particularly heat transfer at the metal/mold interface. The accurate knowledge of interfacial heat transfer coefficients is necessary for accurate modeling of castings. The present work focuses on the determination of transient mold–environment and metal–mold heat transfer coefficients during...
