  1. This textbook presents a strong theoretical basis for convective heat and mass transfer by focusing on boundary layer theory. (Web site)


  1. In meteorology [1], helicity correspond to the transfer of vorticity from the environment to an air parcel in convective motion.
  2. The convective derivative takes into account changes due to time dependence and motion through space along vector field. (Web site)


  1. Regardless of what kind of fluid is being dealt with, convective acceleration is a nonlinear effect. (Web site)
  2. When a fluid rotates, viscous forces may be balanced by the Coriolis effect, rather than convective inertia, leading to the formation of an Ekman layer. (Web site)
  3. It is necessary to use the convective derivative: a time derivative following the fluid.


  1. The air is withdrawn ("evacuated") from the space between the tubes to form a vacuum, which eliminates conductive and convective heat loss. (Web site)
  2. The Right surface of the wall is at T o and exposed to air with convective coefficient h o. (Web site)
  3. The atmospheric mixed layer results from convective air motions, typically seen towards the middle of the day when air at the surface is warmed and rises. (Web site)


  1. Such heat transfer augmentation is herein referred to as augmentation or enhancement of the convective heat transfer coefficient at the wall surface. (Web site)


  1. The Earth's surface including seafloor and continents moves constantly at a slow rate in response to convective motions in the Earth's mantle. (Web site)

Radiant Energy

  1. Radiant energy, as well as convective and conductive energy, is used for heating homes.


  1. It can be caused by thermal or convective currents, differences in terrain and wind speed, along a frontal zone, or variation in temperature and pressure. (Web site)


  1. A violently rotating column of air in contact with and extending between a convective cloud and the surface of the earth. (Web site)
  2. Convective cells may be only a few millimeters across, or they may be larger than Earth itself. (Web site)

  1. Waste-heat boilers may be designed for either radiant or convective heat sources.


  1. Other real-world issues reduce the efficiency of actual engines, due to limits of convective heat transfer, and viscous flow (friction). (Web site)
  2. In convective heat transfer, enthalpy transfer occurs by the movement of hot or cold portions of the fluid together with heat transfer by conduction. (Web site)

  3. The convective heat transfer coefficient (h) is dependent upon the physical properties of the fluid and the physical situation. (Web site)
