Abstract: This paper presents experimental results on heat transfer characteristics of laminar gas flow in a micro-tube with constant wall temperature whose wall temperature is lower than the inlet temperature (cooled case). The experiment was performed for nitrogen gas flow through micro-tubes with 163 and 243 μm in diameter and 50 mm in length. The gas was heated in an upstream section of the micro-tube to Tin=315K, 335K and 355K. The wall temperature was maintained at 305K by circulating water around the micro-tube. The stagnation pressure was chosen in such a way that the exit Mach number ranges from 0.1 to 0.7. The outlet pressure was fixed at the atmospheric condition. The total temperature at the outlet, the inlet stagnation temperature, the mass flow rate and the inlet temperature were measured. The numerical computations based on the Arbitrary – Lagrangian – Eulerian (ALE) method were also performed for the same conditions of the experiment for validation of numerical results. The both results are in excellent agreement. The total and bulk temperatures obtained by the present study are also compared with the temperature of the incompressible flow.
Description: This paper was presented at the 3rd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2011), which was held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki in Greece. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Italian Union of Thermofluiddynamics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, IPEM, the Process Intensification Network, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Heat Transfer Society, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group, and the Energy Institute.
