Abstract:A prediction study is made into the heat transfer in a turbulent flow of gas (air) in a narrow tube with superimposed resonance oscillation. The model of turbulent transfer includes the effect of nonstationarity on the turbulent stress and heat flux. The finite difference method is used to solve the equations of motion and energy. The distribution of the flow rate and pressure along the tube is found by way of numerical solution of a set of cross section-averaged nonstationary equations of motion, continuity, and energy. The effect of the process parameters (Reynolds number, dimensionless oscillation frequency, thermal boundary conditions on the wall) on the period-average heat transfer and heat flux to the wall is analyzed.
