    Heat transfer: Dimensionless numbers

    Heat transfer: Dimensionless numbers PHYSICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF PRANDTL NUMBER Prandtl number (Pr) is a dimensionless number. Pr = momentum diffusivity/Thermal diffusivity =μ Cp/kf Value of Prandtl number signifies the thickness of thermal boundary layer as compared to the thickness of hydro boundary layer. If Pr =1, δ =δth If Pr <1 then δ < δth If Pr […]
