I. Introduction
60 years. Nusselts paper published in 1910 was probably the first one analyzing this problem on a scientific basis (2). I n this paper devoted
to the heat transfer of turbulent gas flow in tubes, the similarity method was originally used for the correlation of experimental data on heat transfer. This is the reason for the continued interest in Nusselts paper. During subsequent years different investigators performed numerous experimental studies on heat transfer processes in turbulent pipe flow for various fluids including liquid metals. As a result they formulated relations for the Nusselt number versus the Reynolds and Prandtl numbers for a wide range of Re and Pr. Reynolds (2) was the first who theoretically studied heat transfer in turbulent pipe flow. T h e relationship obtained between heat flux and wall shear stress, known as the Reynolds analogy, is valid only for Pr = 1. Some investigators have improved upon Reynolds analysis. For example, Taylor (3) and Prandtl ( 4 , 5 ) took into account approximately the influence of fluid flow peculiarities at the wall on heat transfer, assuming the flow to consist of a turbulent core and viscous (laminar) sublayer. Karman (6) improved this model by the introduction of an intermediate layer between a laminar sublayer and a turbulent core. T h e expressions for heat transfer obtained by Karnian and Prandtl are true for constant physical properties over the range 0.7 to 1020 for Pr. T h e last restriction concerns the fact that they neglected turbulent heat transfer in a viscous sublayer (this leads to essential errors when Pr is large) and heat transfer by conduction in the turbulent core (this is not true for low Pr numbers). Further development of analytical methods for heat transfer in a turbulent pipe flow with constant physical properties was achieved when investigators digressed from the above assumptions and began to use more accurate relationships for the distributions of velocity and eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum along the pipe cross section (724). For example, Lyon ( 8 ) obtained an expression for the Nusselt number in the case of constant heat flux at the wall. This expression predicts the heat transfer rate, if the distributions of velocity and turbulent diffusivity of heat are known. The use of more accurate relationships for distributions of velocity and eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum require the application of numerical methods. Numerical calculations of heat transfer in turbulent pipe flow for constant physical properties were carried out in (812, 13, 14). T h e results of these predictions covering a wide range of Re and P r numbers as a rule are in good agreement with experimental data. Thus, nowadays the problem of heat transfer in a turbulent quasi

and momentum for fluids possessing variable physical properties. These expressions have been more or less studied for fluids with constant physical properties only; consequently, in the case of variable properties we have only a few theories which have not been verified experimentally. That is why analytical solutions of heat transfer in a turbulent flow with variable physical properties are not so accurate, e.g., in the case of a laminar flow. They must be verified by comparison with experimental data. Experimental study of fluid flow and heat transfer for variable physical properties is also a very difficult problem because experiments at high temperatures, large heat fluxes, and high pressures are not easy to perform. Other aspects of the problem are the difficulties of interpretation and correlation of experimental data, because heat transfer and skin friction at variable physical properties depend on many parameters. That is why the dynamics and the heat transfer of turbulent flow with variable physical properties have not been studied in full. Nevertheless during the last 1015 years striking progress has been made in this field. Several theoretical papers are devoted to the fluid mechanics and heat transfer of turbulent pipe flow with variable physical properties. Kutateladze (1517) studied a gas flow at large temperature differences and small subsonic velocities. He obtained a correlation between the friction factor and the temperature ratio parameter (the wall temperature to the bulk gas temperature ratio) for the limiting case of Re + 00. And for a gas Pr m 1, it was assumed that the same relationship was valid for the heat transfer coefficient. These relationships are also approximately valid for the finite values of Re. Deissler (10, 11, 18) and Goldmann (19) have developed methods for the calculation of heat transfer and skin friction for an incompressible fluid with an arbitrary temperature dependence of its properties. T h e essence of their methods is in the simultaneous numerical integration of the energy and momentum equations formulated on the assumption that heat flux and shear stress are constant (or changing linearly) along the pipe radius. T h e methods of Deissler and Goldmann differ with respect to the calculation of the eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum for constant and variable fluid properties. Deissler performed calculations of heat transfer and skin friction for some gases and a liquid; Deissler and Goldmann performed these calculations for water above the critical point. Petukhov and Popov (14) have developed another method of calculating the heat transfer and skin friction for an incompressible fluid with an arbitrary temperature dependence of its properties. Analytical expressions for both heat transfer and skin friction and also for velocity and temperature profiles obtained from the energy and momentum

Turbulent flow is, of its nature, transient. Velocity, temperature, and other properties change continuously in time at every point of a turbulent flow. These changes are irregular fluctuations with respect to some temporal mean. This behavior allows us to represent different turbulent flow properties as the sum of the mean value, in time, and a pulsation of this value. So we can describe the field of real (instantaneous) velocities as a field of averaged (in time) velocities and the superimposed field of velocity fluctuations. We can do the same with temperature, pressure, and density fields and with other dependent variables. With this approach, transfer processes in a turbulent flow are controlled by two mechanisms: molecular and convective (turbulent). T h e first mechanism results in the appearance of viscous stresses proportional to the gradients of the averaged velocity and heat fluxes due to heat conduction which are proportional to the averaged temperature gradients. T h e second mechanism gives rise to turbulent stresses caused by momentum transfer due to velocity fluctuations and turbulent heat fluxes caused by heat transfer resulting from velocity and temperature fluctuations. This approach suggested by Reynolds allows us to pass from energy, momentum, and continuity equations for instantaneous values to the
508
B. S. PETUKHOV
corresponding equations for the averaged values. Hence, the solution of turbulent flows is reduced to the analysis of the averaged equations in combination with analytical expressions for turbulent diffusivities arising from some physically motivated assumptions in accordance with experimental data. Furthermore, we shall consider a quasisteady1 axisymmetric turbulent flow of an incompressible fluid with variable physical properties. We shall restrict our problem to the analysis of the fluid flow and heat transfer in circular pipes far from the entrance, i.e., in that region where thermal and velocity boundary layers coincide. At present it is possible to analyze this problem only approximately. Therefore we shall make the following assumptions:
1. Flow velocities are not large, so the energy dissipation can be neglected. 2. T h e effect of body forces is small in comparison with that of viscosity and inertia forces. 3. Physical properties change weakly over the range of temperature T',where T is the averaged temperature fluctuations (i.e., from T to T value, T' is the temperature fluctuation); therefore, the physical properties at a given point can be considered constant and equal to the physical properties at the averaged temperature for this point. 4. Change of heat flux along the axis caused by thermal conductivityand turbulent diffusivity is small compared with its change along the radius. 5. Change of normal stresses (viscous and turbulent) along the coordinate axes is small in comparison with the change in the shear stresses.
The averaged energy, momentum, and continuity equations for the conditions we have formulated can be written in a cylindrical coordinate system:
Therefore, from Eq. (4), the radial velocity component IY, = 0. In addition, if we assume that the change of viscous and turbulent shear stresses along the x axis is small, i.e.,
i:
( 2; .
p ? W )
w0
then it is seen from Eq. (3) that a/& = 0, i.e., pressure P is constant over the cross section. With these assumptions the set of Eqs. (1)(4) is reduced to the following two equations:
On the righthand side of Eq. ( 5 ) , in parentheses, the expression for the heat flux is given by
q
=
A(;iT/ar)  pWTh
(7)
T h e first term of this sum is the heat flux due to conductivity, while the second item is accounted for by the eddy diffusivity of heat. On the righthand side of Eq. (6), the expression for shear stress is given by
u =
 [p(
ii W,/ar)  p W, W,.]
(8)
Here the first term is the viscous stress and the second term is the turbulent stress.
5 10
B. S. PETUKHOV
In theoretical investiagations t;.e assumption is often made that the heat flux and shear stress vary linearly with respect to r , i.e.,
q = qwR
and
u =
uwR
(9)
and
u = uW
(10)
Here qw and ow are the heat flux and the shear stress at the pipe wall, respectively; R = r/ro is the dimensionless radius; ro is the pipe radius. We can see that the first assumption from (9) is fulfilled only in the case of slug2 flow, and the second assumption only for fully developed flow with constant physical properties. As for assumption (lo), it is not fulfilled for pipe flow. However, in a number of cases assumption (9) and even (10) do not introduce great errors into our analysis. This may be attributed to the fact that in calculations of heat transfer and skin friction a correct description of the flow near the wall is the most essential, and in this region assumptions (9) and even (10) are fulfilled approx1 1 , p. 521 imately. Quantitative error estimations are given in Section 1 (see Table I, p. 522). Assumptions (9) and (10) allow us to replace Eqs. ( 5 ) and (6) by simpler ones which can be obtained from Eqs. (7) and (8) as a result of the substitution of q and u from (9) and (10). For calculations with the help of Eqs. (5) and (6) it is necessary to express the turbulent heat flux pW,h and the turbulent shear stress p WzW, as functions of the independent variables and the averaged flow properties. Then it is convenient to introduce the coefficients of the eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum.

A slug flow is a flow ~ v i t l iil uniform (over the pipe cross section) velocity profile.

(13)
Though we have introduced eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum it is still very difficult to determine pW,h and pWsWr. These difficulties remain in the determination of eq and E , which should be considered as unknown functions of the independent variables and the averaged flow properties. We might detertnine the eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum from semiempirical turbulence theories such as Prandtls mixing length theory or Karmans local similarity theory. But the relations arising from the semiempirical turbulence theory do not give the correct description of the eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum near the wall and near the pipe axis. More reliable information on the eddy diffusivities of heat and momentum may be obtained on the basis of experimental data correlations in light of the semiempirical turbulence theory. I n the case of fully developed flow with constant physical properties, as is seen from Eq. (6), the shear stress changes linearly along the radius, i.e., u = a,R. Substituting this relation into (14) and transforming to universal coordinates while nondimensionalizing, we obtain

where q = W,/Z,* is the dimensionless velocity, 1 = v*y/v is the universal independent variable, E * = ( ~ , / p ) l ~ is the socalled friction velocity,y = (yo  Y) is the coordinate reference point at the wall, and

Thus, for the experimental determination of the eddy ditfusivity of momentum E, we need to measure only the velocity distribution along the tube section. Many investigators have measured velocity profiles in circular and plane tubes in a turbulent isothermal flow. T h e surveys of these investigations can be found i n :I number of books and articles (2023).

Finally, when 7 > 30 and R < 0.85, y and E , depend both on 7 and R; when R m 0.5, E, passes through a maximum and tends to some constant quantity while approaching the axis. Some authors suggested empirical and semiempirical relations for the eddy diffusivity of momentum for an isothermal pipe flow. These relationships take into account the abovementioned aspects of the variation in E, . We shall discuss only those which will be of use in further investigation.

We can only say from theoretical considerations that m : : 3.4 Being inaccurate, measurements near the wall do not produce a reliable value for m. \Ye can indirectly infer m values from comparisons ofthe predicted values of heat and mass transfer mith experimental data at large Pr or Sc. Such a comparison was made in (25) on the basis of a statistical analysis of the experimental data on heat and mass transfer which shows that m ranges from 3 to 3.2. Apparently, this is close to reality. Thus, Eq. (20) which gives m 3 is more likely to describe the mechanisms of turbulent transfer near the wall than Eq. (17). Equations (20) and (2 I ) have some other advantages over Eqs. ( 1 7)( 19).

transfer and skin friction. Besides, Eq. (21) takes into account changes in EJv with R (and with Re) in the central part of the tube, and on the tube axis it gives a nonzero value of E, which varies with Re that is in full agreement with experimental data. This means that the velocity gradient calculated from Eq. (21) is zero along the tube axis. Therefore, we shall use mainly Eqs. (20) and (21). In Fig. 1, E,/V versus 7 is plotted for

various Re numbers as calculated from Eqs. (20) and (21). Nevertheless, it should be noted that, with small Pr numbers, calculations of heat transfer (in the case of constant physical properties) using Eqs. (17) and (18) and (20) and (21) give similar results (see Section 111). The problem of heat diffusivity in a turbulent flow has been investigated less than that of momentum diffusivity. If we proceed from Reynolds concept that the turbulent diffusivities of heat and momentum are identical, we should take the ratio of the eddy diffusivities p = e , / ~ ,= 1. As a matter of fact, Prandtls mixing length theory gives the same result. Reichardt (7) made an assumption that the p value near the wall equals unity, and it increases as the distance from the wall increases. Having measured velocity and temperature profiles in a flow, and using Eq. (5) and relation ( I l ) , we can determine the eddy diffusivity of heat cq from this experinwntal data. Unfortunately such measurements

Constants n and K have the samc values as in the case of constant physical properties. Equation (22) is recommended when vw < 26, and Eq. (23) is used when rlW . : ' 26. Goldmann (29) suggested a method of calculating E , , with variable physical properties using the hypothesis that local turbulence characteristics a t a given point depcncl on physical properties a t that point and do not depend on physical properties changing in the vicinity of that point. In light of this hypothesis, Goldmann has come to the conclusion

that the velocity distribution with variable physical properties is described by the same relations between the generalized variables y+ and T + as those between the variables cp and q with constant physical properties. T h e generalized variables are described by
If p and v are constants, then cp+ = y and q+ = 11. Transforming in Eqs. (1 5), from variables y and q to y+ and q+ we can see that for the determination of E,/U with variable properties we can use the same relations as in the case of constant properties provided y and q are substituted for y+ and q+, respectively. T h e comparison of predicted heat transfer results for a gas at high T,/T, values with experimental data shows that the calculation method for c0 with variable properties suggested by Goldmann produces better agreement with experimental heat transfer values than Deissler's method. The ratio of the diffusivities of heat and momentum at variable properties, as in the case of constant properties, is usually taken to be one (/3 = 1).
C. ANALYTICAL EXPRESSIONS FOR TEMPERATURE AND VELOCITY PROFILES, HEATTRANSFER, AND SKINFRICTION
Considcr the problem of turbulent fully developed quasisteady flow and heat transfer in a circular tube, assuming that the fluid is incompressible and its physical properties display some arbitrary temperature dependence. T h e problem is analyzed for the case of constant heat flux which is prescribed at the wall (qw = const) (14). If the assumptions of Section 11, A are applied, this problem may be described by the energy and momentum equations ( 5 ) and (6). The lefthand side of Eq. (6) can be written as
As earlier, a@W,)/ax w 0 was assumed (see Section 11, A). Taking all this into account and also using relationships (13) and (14) we obtain the equations

M'ith variable physical properties and especially with variable heat capacity and constant heat flus at the wall, assumption (27) holds to a greater degree than the usual assumptions of linear change of q along the radius o r of uniform (over the section) longitudinal temperature gradient For liquids and gases flowing at sniall subsonic velocities, the pressure gradients due to longitudinal density changes a/ax(pW.,.P) are, by far, smaller than the total pressure gradient dP/dx. Since P does not change along the tube section assumption (28) is also well founded under these conditions. First, analytical expressions must be found for the enthalpy and temperature fields and the Nusselt number. Multiplying Eq. (25) by Y dr, taking into account assumption (27), and integrating with respect to the radius from 0 to ro , we obtain

where h, is the enthalpy at the wall. Solving (30) and (13) simultaneously and integrating from R to 1, we find the analogous temperature distribution equation
Now we shall calculate the bulk enthalpy (A,,), or, to be more exact, the enthalpy difference h,  h, , By definition,
Substituting h, obtain

Substituting h,  12, from (37) into (39), we obtain the expression for the Nusselt number
For constant physical properties, wc can reduce Eq. (41) to the wellknown Lyon integral (8)
Now we shall deduce analytical expressions for the velocity profile and the friction factor. Having multiplied Eq. (26) by r dr and taking into account assumption (28), we integrate first with respect to r from 0 to r , and second from 0 to r,, . Dividing the first of the obtained expressions by the second we get

This result is the consequence of assumption (28) and it essentially means that we approximated the real shear stress distribution (along the radius) by a linear one. Having substituted u into (14) and integrated from R to 1 we get the velocity distribution equation

T h e procedure is simplified in the case of constant physical properties, where the distribution of E , / V and a velocity profile are calculated, and Nu and [ obtained from Eqs. (42) and (47). Naturally, numerical calculation demands the use of computers.
A. ANALYTICAL RESULTS Consider the heat transfer solution for the case of a fully developed flow with constant properties i n a circular tube with constant heat flux at the wall. T h e calculation has been done by Petukhov and Popov (14) by the method discussed in Section 11, C. T h e eddy diffusivity of momentum was calculated from Keichardts Eqs. (20) and (21); j ? = E , J ~ was ~ taken to be one. T h e calculation was done for Re 1045 x lo6 and Pr 02000. T h e method of calculation takes into account the variation of the heat flux q and shear stress u along the radius. I n order to estimate the errors which could appear with the assumption of uniform q and u along the radius, several values of Nu and E were calculated for q = qw and u = u , . T h e ratios of thc corresponding values of N u and 5 for varying q and u to these values for q = qw and u = a , are tabulated and presented in Table I . As can he seen from the table, the assumption of uniform q and u produces noticeable errors in N u and [ values, especially for low Re and Pr. Nu vs Pr for various lie, according to the predicted values, is plotted in Fig. 2 (for Pr 3 , 0.5). T h e calculations over the range Re and

This equation suggested in paper (13) describes the predicted results with an accuracy of 56% over a range of 1045 x lo6 for Re and 0.5200 for Pr, and with loo/;, accuracy for 0.5 < Pr < 2000 and the same range of Re. With very large Pr number an analytical expression for Nu (or Sh)5 may be obtained. I n this case the integrand in Eq.

At Pr 3 100, Eq. (51) agrees with the results of more accurate numerical calculations to within an error of 10% and within 2 % for Pr 3 1000. For small Prandtl numbers Eq. (51) produces overestimated Nusselt numbers which increase with decreasing Pr and increasing Re. It is of interest to compare the results of this analysis with similar calculations of other authors. Deissler (22, 24) calculated the heat transfer for constant properties over the ranges 4 x lo3 < Re < 2 x lo5 and 0.73 < Pr < 3000 by using Eqs. (1 3) and (14) and assuming q = pw and cr = a , . From Eqs. (17) and (18) he calculated an eddy diffusivity assuming p = I . Sparrow et al. (31) calculated the heat transfer over the range lo4 < Re < 5 x lo5 and 0.7 < Pr < 150 by directly solving the energy equation. Here they used Deisslers expression for the velocity profile and eddy diffusivities, Eqs. (17) and (19), assuming p = 1. Deissler and Sparrow et al. produced similar results (it is natural since Therefore . in Fig. 2 the actually they used the same expressions for E ~ / v ) results of the analysis discussed earlier are compared only with the results of Deissler obtained over a wider range of Prandtl numbers. With Pr 1020 the results of the earlier analysis are in good agreement with the results of Deissler. However, for higher Prandl number the results disagree. When Pr = 100 the Nusselt number according to Deissler is 15 yo lower and when Pr = 1000 it is 25 yo lower its value calculated by Eq. (48). For very large Pr (or Sc) [Pr (or Sc) 2001 Deissler recommends the equation

was obtained with the assumption that the eddy diffusivity of momentum e o / v is described by Eq. (17a). Unlike Eq. (51), the expression (52) gives a weaker dependence of Nu on Pr. That is why at very large Prandtl numbers (or Sc) Nu (or Sh) calculated from (52) appears to be lower than that calculated from Eq. (51) (at Sc = lo5 it is lower by approximately a factor of two). Only by comparing the predicted results with the experimental data can we solve the problem to the extent that the predicted results correspond to reality. Before the discussion of the experimental data we shall note a very important fact.

T h e predicted results listed in this paragraph refer to the case of heat transfer with constant heat flux at the wall (q, = const, Nu = Nu,). If heat transfer occurs at a constant wall temperature (t,%  const, N u = Nu,) the relation of N u with Re and Pr differs from that for the case when qw = const. However, theoretical analysis carried out in ( 9 , 3 2 , 33) reveals the following: the difference in Nu, and Nu, (when Re and Pr are the same) takes place only when Pr numbers are small, i.e., mainly for liquid metals. When both Pr and Re increase this difference decreases rapidly. When Pr 0.7 and Re = lo4, Nu, is already only 4% greater than Nu, . \Then lie increases to lo5 this difference decreases 10 and K 2 lo5 the difference is less than 1 o/o.6 to ~ 2 ' ) ~ and ) ) at Pr Thus, when P r 2 0.7 and Re 2 lo4 the results of the heat transfer calculations both at q,, const and at t, = const are valid.

B. EXPERIMENTAL DATA
A great number of experimental papers on heat transfer in turbulent pipe flow have been published. LJnfortunately, in many cases measurement accuracy was not high; therefore, heat transfer coefficients obtained experimentally often contain substantial errors which are difficult to estimate. Little experimental data of rather high accuracy have been reported in recent years (3437). Mainly heat transfer for air and water flow has been measured, i.e., approximately over a range of 0.710 for Prandtl numbers. Only a few authors have obtained heat transfer data at Pr from 10 to 100150 and a little higher. Heat transfer measurements were not performed for Pr 1000 because of the great experimental difficulties. Therefore mass transfer experimental data were used over the range of Pr (Sc to be more exact) for which the exact analogy between heat and mass transfer processes was valid. For comparison with the predicted results the most reliable experimental data have been chosen. T h e main characteristics of the data are given in Table 11. T h e heat transfer experimental data were extrapolated to the zero wall and flow temperature difference to avoid the affect of the dependence of the fluid physical properties upon the temperature. In some cases such extrapolation was performed rather accurately, while in other cases only approximately. Naturally the mass transfer experimental data need not be extrapolated because all the measurements were performed under isothermal conditions. I n Fig. 3 the predicted results described by Eq. (48) are compared with
All the listed results are for the case of fully developed Nu number. T h e difference between Nu,, and Nu, can be larger at the thermal entrance region.

Comparing Eq. (53) with Eqs. (48) and (51) it is easy to see that with Eq. (53) at constant c, m, and n it is impossible to describe to a reasonable accuracy the change of Nu number with Re and Pr over a wide range of these parameters. A direct comparison of Eq. (53) with experimental data leads to the same conclusion. Allen and Eckert (34) have shown that 1.3 x 10411 x lo4 and Pr = 8, Eq. (53) (when c = 0.023, for Re m = 0.8, and n = 0.4) produces an error of u p to 20%. An equation of the type (53) can be used for N u = N u (Re, Pr) only assuming that c, m, and n are functions of Re and Pr. For Re 1045.106 and Pr (or Sc) 0.5105, m changes from 0.79 to 0.92, while n varies from 0.33 to 0.6.
IV. Heat Transfer and Skin Friction for Liquids with Variable Viscosity
A. THEORETICAL RESULTS For liquids (condensed medium) far from their critical point only dynamic viscosity varies greatly with temperature; all the other physical properties (p, C, , A ) depend on temperature rather weakly. Therefore while investigating nonisothermal liquid flow, a model with variable viscosity may be used as a good approximation, other physical properties being assumed constant. Deisslers paper ( I I ) should be noted as one of the papers devoted to the analysis of flow and heat transfer for liquids with variable viscosity. His analysis reduces to the simultaneous solution of Eqs. (13) and (14) in dimensionless form by means of the successive approximations method. As in the case of constant properties, q = qw and u = uw are assumed. T h e eddy diffusivity of momentum is calculated from Eqs. (22) and (23), and /3 is taken to be one. T h e variation of viscosity with temperature is taken into account only near the wall (7 < 26). T h e temperature dependence of viscosity is formulated as where K is a constant; K varies from  1 to 4. As for the turbulent core viscosity, it is considered constant here. Deissler has calculated heat transfer and skin friction over the range of 1103 for Pr and 4 Y 1032 x lo5 for Re. His results are given as Nu = N u (Re,Pr,.) [where the subscript x means that the physical

below is for the calculation of skin friction. T h e values of .y: in Fig. 5 correspond to K 1 .O to 4.0 and pl,,/po 0.52.0 (approximately). T h e exponent K does not affect strongly the shape of the curves x(Pr); nevertheless, the curves appear to be quite different in the cases of liquid heating and cooling. Thus, according to Deissler's theory the effect of variable viscosity on heat transfer and skin friction does not depend on Re and changes only with Pr. However, when Pr : . 10, the reference temperature for the calculation of heat transfer varies weakly with Pr and is close to the arithmetic mean of t,, and tII . I n the following paragraph we shall discuss the agreement between the predicted results and the experimental data.

EQUATIONS B. EXPERIMENTAL DATA AND EMPIRICAL Heat transfer and skin friction experimental data obtained under the conditions of essentially varying viscosity are not numerous; with rare exception they are not accurate and often do not agree well with each other. Therefore we shall use only that small amount of data which may be considered the most reliable. Analyzing the experimental data we assume that the relation of N u with Re and Pr, and the relation between 5 and Re at variable physical properties (in this case at variable viscosity) is the same as in the case of constant properties. This assumption is confirmed by the experimental data for liquids with variable viscosity, gases with variable physical properties, and certain other cases (see the following sections). Of course, assuming a similar variation of N u with Re and Pr, and 8 with Re for both constant and variable physical properties is only approximate. For example, Allen and Eckert discovered experimentally (34) (see Fig. 6) that variable viscosity affected heat transfer to a greater

However, the error in Nu arising from not including the influence of Re on Nu and p,,/pwis several percent. Because of the absence of systematic data it is impossible at present to take into consideration such effects. If we proceed from the given assumption, the effect of variable

All the physical properties (except pw) in the expressions for the dimensionless numbers are calculated at the bulk temperature t,, for the given tube section. I n Fig. 6, Allen and Eckerts experimental data (34) on heat transfer for the case of water heating are compared with Deisslers predicted results and some empirical relationships. As is readily seen, the predicted results describe qualitatively the effect of variable viscosity on heat transfer but produce quantitatively overestimated values.

given in Fig. 7. T h e averaging curves drawn through the experimental points correspond to n = 0.1 1 when the fluid is heated (pw/pb < 1) and n = 0.25 when the fluid is cooled (pw/&,> 1). T h e value n = 0.25 is in agreement with Mikheev's recommendation (44). He suggested that one should take into account the effect of variable physical properties by in the case of means of (Prb/Prw)0.25 which takes the form (pb/pw)0'25 varaible viscosity and constant C , and A. Thus, to calculate heat transfer in a turbulent flow with variable viscosity we can use Eq. (56) with n = 0.1 1 for the case of heating and n = 0.25 for the case of cooling. Equation (56) is valid over a range of 0.0840 for pw/pb , 1041.25 x lo5 for Re, and 2140 for Pr. Figure 8 illustrates the effect of variable viscosity on the friction factor where the measured values of Allen and Eckert (34) and Rohonczy (46) are presented.

ANALYTICAL RESULTS Consider the analysis of the heat transfer and skin friction for a turbulent gas flow in a circular tube, far from the entrance with constant heat flux at the wall. T h e solution was obtained by Petukhov and Popov (14) using the method described in Section 11, C. T h e physical gas properties p , C, , A, p were considered as given functions of temperature. T h e variation of density with pressure and the energy dissipation in the flow was neglected. Therefore the analysis is valid only for gas flows with small subsonic velocities. T h e eddy diffusivity of momentum was determined according to Eqs.(20)and(21)and was extended to the case of

T h e calculations were carried out for air and hydrogen over the following ranges of the characteristic parameters: 1044.3 X lo6 for Re, and 0.373.1 for T,/T,, in air, lo45.8 X lo6 for Re, and 0.373.7 for T,,,/Tb in hydrogen (here Re, = p d / p b ) .

Figure 9 illustrates how variable physical properties affect the distribution of the dimensionless flow parameters along the radius: temperature, velocity, mass velocity, heat flux, and eddy diffusivity __ of momentum. All the curves correspond to Pr, and Re, = p W d i p , (these numbers have approximately the same values). Due to the variation of physical properties the temperature profile appears more concave for cooling than for heating. T h e property variation doesn't affect the velocity profile so strongly as it does the mass velocity profile. For the case of the fluid being heated, the mass velocity profile is flatter than for the cooled fluid. As is seen from Eq. (30) a change in the mass velocity profile results in a redistribution of the relative heat flux along the radius. For heating, when pW, decreases at the wall and, consequently, convective heat transfer along the axis decreases too, a maximum occurs

For simplicity we can take n to be constant for heating also. Then, when n = 0.47, Eq.

for cooling. Equation (60) describes the calculated results within 23 010 over the range 0.373.7 for 0 and 14 x 10"1O6 for Re,*. As Re,* varies over the indicated range, n goes from 0.44 to 0.58 for the case of heating and from 0.32 to 0.42 for the case of cooling. If in Eq. (60) n is taken as 0.52 for heating and 0.38 for cooling, this equation describes the calculated data to within 700 accuracy in the first case and 4", in the second. Kutateladze and Leontiev (17) have obtained an analytical expression for the functions describing the influence of variable physical properties on heat transfer and skin friction in a turbulent gas flow when Re + 00. By making some assuniptions (u and q, vary identically with respect to the radius for both constant and variable properties, the velocity and temperature fields are similar, C,, = const) they obtained the following relationship:
T h e authors also recommend this expression for finite Re values, based on the empirical fact that the influence of varying physical properties on heat transfer and skin friction depends weakly on Re. Equation (61) produces stronger dependence of heat transfer and skin friction on the temperature ratio parameter than Petukhov and Popov's analysis, but the difference is not more than 10% (see Figs. 10 and 11). At large Re Eq. (61) is in good agreement with Eq. (60). Deissler and Presler ( 4 7 ) analyzed the heat transfer for a number of gases (argon, helium, air, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide), taking into account the temperature dependence of their physical properties. They used the same method (Deisslcr's method) as for fluids with variable viscosity (see Section I V , A), the only difference being in considering all the physical properties of the fluid ( p , C,, , p, A ) as functions of temperature.

However, from these results we can see that the change in heat transfer with the temperature ratio parameter is less pronounced in comparison with the results of (14) and (17).

Sometimes 8 is not included in an equation of the type (63) because the influence of variable physical properties is sometimes accounted for by the appropriate choice of a reference temperature. For example, with physical property values chosen at the temperature T, = $(Tb Tw), the experimental data can be correlated satisfactority. In the entrance region of the tube the coefficient c and also the exponent n [from (61) and (62)]in Eq. (63) change with x/d. Far from the entrance, i.e., when xld > 40100, c becomes constant and n becomes independent
Table I V does not provide heat transfer data in relatively short tubes, as heat transfer expressions in the entrance region have not been discussed in this paper.

(59) which represents the analytical results. In Fig. 12 the abscissa is the ratio of Nu,, at variable properties to Nu,,,,at constant properties, calculated from Eq. (48). For the case of gas heating Iable IV and Fig. 12 show t h a t c varies from 0.019 to 0.024, and n ranges from 0.3 to 0.7. This differences is most probably attributed to the fact that n is actually not constant. Its value decreases while B increases. Both theoretical analysis and 61) confirm this. Therefore, using Eq. (63) as the experimental data (48, mathematical representation of the experimental data when n = const, different investigators obtain different values for n depending on the range of 0. Extrapolation of these data (obtained when 0 2 I ) to 0 = 1 leads naturally to different values of c. For the case of gas heating Fig. 12 shows good agreement of the analytical results Eq. (59) with the experimental data only if the empirical equations are not extrapolated past the limits imposed upon 0 by the experiments. Also, within this restriction a good degree of consistency is observed for all the experimental data considered. Neither the experimental nor the analytical results reveal a noticeable influence of the Reynolds number and the type of gas on the shape of the curve Nub/NuO,, vs 8. Apparently this influence, at least for the gases

investigated (see Table IV), is within the range of experimental error. Thus, for practical heat transfer calculations in the case of gas heating 0 4,Eq. (59) may be used. when 1 As was mentioned above, heat transfer for gas cooling has not been investigated extensively. In particular, there is no experimental data on local heat transfer. Therefore, the analytical results can only be compared with experimental data on average heat transfer. Empirical equations of Fig. 12 show that for gas cooling the heat transfer is larger than when 6' = 1. Over the range of the experiments the ratio Nu,/Nuob was found to be independent of 6'. Perhaps the scatter of points, found in the experiments, prevented the actual relation between Nu, and 0 from being observed. Nevertheless, in the case of gas cooling, even under the restriction stated, the relation between Nub/NuO,, and 0, from experimental data, appears to be significantly weaker than that obtained analytically. Further experiments and theoretical studies are necessary to explain these differences. To obtain new data for practical calculations of heat transfer under the conditions of gas cooling, the simple equation suggested by Ivashchenko (63) from the treatment of Ilyin's experimental data (48) may be used:

This probably stems from the inaccuracy of the measurements (the experimental data differs from the recommended relations by 2025 yo).Ilyin's experimental data (48) are given in Fig. 11.

VI. Heat Transfer and Skin Friction for SinglePhase Fluids at Subcritical States
A. ANALYTICAL RESULTS
By heat transfer in singlephase media at subcritical states (or, shortly, in the supercritical range) is meant that the heat transfer takes place at supercritical pressures and at subcritical or pseudocritical temperatures (i.e., at temperatures corresponding to the maximum heat capacity at constant pressure). We can explain heat transfer anomalies in the supercritical region by the fact that physical properties in this region change considerably and in a special way. Figure 13 shows the behavior of physical properties with temperature. T h i s figure presents the data on carbon dioxide at P = 100 bar. T h e majority of the physical properties do not change monotonically: heat capacity a t constant pressure has characteristic maxima; heat conductivity and viscosity coefficients usually pass through a minimum. Density changes considerahly but the volumetric coefficient of thermal expansion attains a maximum. 'I'herefore, even though the tcniperature difference in the flow is sniall (T,\  T,, rn lO2Oc'C), the physical properties change considerably across the tube. For instance, if T,, < Till < T , (here T,,,is a pseudocritical temperature) as the distance from the wall increases, C,, increases rapidly, goes through a maximum, and then decreases. I n the case of heating density increases rapidly from the wall to the tube asis. T h e variation of physical properties along the radius is especially significant a t high heat fluxes and at large temperature differences between the wall and the fluid, respectively. If heat transfer takes place at rather small temperature differences then

irrespective of the change of physical properties with temperature, the calculation of such a process may be carried out by assuming that the physical properties are constant. Therefore, Eq. (48) is also valid for turbulent liquid pipe flow when T ,  T,, + O in the supercritical region. Figure 14 depicts the heat transfer coefficient 01 calculated from Eq. (48) for carbon dioxide vs TI,at different pressures P > P,, . Of course, the behavior of 01 essentially depends on the specific variation of the carbon dioxide physical properties with T and P. American investigators Deissler and Goldmann (19, 64) were the first who theoretically analyzed heat transfer and skin friction at supercritical states, taking into account the variation of the physical properties of the fluid with temperature. In both papers the authors studied heat transfer in a fully developed turbiilcnt liquid flow in a circular tube, the heat flux at the wall being constant (qw = const). Having written Eqs. (13) and (14) in a dimensionless form, they solved these equations simultaneously by the successive approximation method. T h e distribution of q and along the radius was taken either constant (Deissler) or linear (Goldmann). Deissler and Goldmanns methods differ from one another because they used different methods of calculating the eddy diffusivity of momentum at variable fluid properties. Deissler used Eqs. (22) and (23) and Goldmann determined E , from the universal velocity profile (for constant properties the profile is calculated by Deisslers method) in terms of his own variables and 711 [see relationships ( 2 4 ) ] .In both cases /3 was taken to be one.

Goldmann also carried out heat transfer and skin friction calculations for the case of heated water at a pressure of 344 bar, but over a wider temperature range of 260840 C. Ihe analytical solution of the heat transfer is presented by the equation
which is based on the assumption that with both constant and variable

Thus, divergence from a linear relation characterizes the influence of variable physical properties. Using Goldmanns method Tanaka et al. (65) performed heat transfer calculations for carbon dioxide at P = 78.5 bar for both a heated and a cooled fluid. Their results are given in Fig. 16. As is seen in the figure, the graph of the heat transfer coefficient a vs t,, at t,, w t,ll passes through a maximum, which may be attributed to the presence of the appropriate maxima of C J T ) and Pr( 7)(see Fig. 13). T h e maximum value of a in the case of cooling (qw < 0) is higher than that in the case of heating (qw > 0) and decreases when q,\ increases. This is because the conductivity in the viscous sublayer for cooling is almost twice that for heating, and it decreases when qw and T , increase. For cooling a decreases with increasing qIv at a smaller rate than for heating. For the calculation of heat transfer and skin friction in a supercritical region, Popov (66) used the method given in Section 11, C. T h e eddy diffusivity of momentum was determined from Eqs. (20) and (21) extended to the case of variable physical properties by introducing

Comparison of the analytical results with the experimental data shows that the relation of the Nu number to Re and Pr and to 5 and Re at variable properties is approximately the same as at constant physcial properties.

properties at subcritical states.ll In case of significant variations in physical properties over the tube cross section and for some specific flow and heat transfer regimes (the socalled regimes with diminished and enhanced heat transfer, see below) the present theoretical methods do not permit the satisfactory description of heat transfer at supercritical states. In this case considerable disagreement between the predicted results and the experimental data is observed. There is every reason to believe that this disagreement may be attributed to the unsatisfactory estimation of the variable physical properties effect (mainly of density) on turbulent diffusivity. So, for example, in the work of Hall et al. (72) who studied heat transfer in the carbon dioxide flow in a plane tube with one wall heated and the other cooled, it is shown that for large density gradients in the layer adjacent to the wall the theoretical results obtained by Goldmanns method and the experimental data candiffer by a factor of two from one another. Unfortunately, the problem of turbulent diffusivity at variable physical properties has not as yet been completely studied. Therefore, relevant experimental data and theoretical results would be of great interest.

way: (a) normal regimes, (b) regimes with diminished heat transfer, (c) regimes with enhanced heat transfer. Normal regimes are those for which the relations observed in experiments can be explained and analyzed by the existing concepts of turbulent flow and heat transfer formulations for variable physical properties. Regimes with diminished and enhanced heat transfer are those with lower or higher heat transfer coefficients, respectively, in comparison with those which should have been expected if the regime had been normal. Such a classification of flow and heat transfer regimes is, of course, rather conventional and most likely it is not a matter of principle differences between these regimes but has appeared as a result of insufficient knowledge of the actual mechanism of turbulent diffusivity with variable physical properties. A rather elementary model of turbulent diffusivity used at present allows us to describe normal regimes satisfactorily, but it appears insufficient and inadequate for description of more complicated phenomena involved in regimes with diminished and enhanced heat transfer. In heat exchanger systems at supercritical states, normal regimes occur mostly. Heat transfer formulations for these regimes are essentially in good agreement with predicted results. Several empirical equations are known for the calculation of heat transfer in the normal regime. One of the first equations was suggested by Miropolskii and Shitsman (75, 9Z). This equation has the form

quite satisfactorily, are selfconsistent, and are in good agreement with the analytical results. Therefore, Eqs. (69) and (71) can be used to calculate the normal heat transfer regimes in the case of heated water and carbon dioxide when thcrc is no free convection influence. T h e problem of free convection influence on turbulent forced convection has as yet been investigated very little. Nevertheless, the available data show that under certain conditions this influence may be considerable. For example, according to (92), in the flow of water through a uniformly heated horizontal tube at P = 245 bar, = 374 kg/m2sec, and qw = 0.45 * lo6 W/m2, the nonuniformity of the circumferential wall temperature distribution reached 220C. In the case of a vertical or inclined pipe flow with small Re values we should also expect a substantial effect of free convection on the heat transfer. Tarasova and Leontiev (94) studied skin friction for the case of water flowing through smooth tubes in the supercritical region. T h e experiments were carried out in downward and upward flows in heated tubes over the pressure range of 226265 bar, with heat fluxes from 0.6 . lo6 to 2.3 lo6 \Y/m2 and in the range of Re, from 5 lo4 to 63. lo4.

A number of experimental studies (74, 77, 82, 89, 95) have led to the discovery of diminished heat transfer regimes. Such regimes are seen very clearly in Shitsman's experiinents (77) with water at P  226245 bar. For fluid heating a t T I , T,,, and a certain combination of mass velocity and wall heat flux, heat transfer sharply decreases and the wall temperature increases rapidly (in the case of pw = const).'" T h e heat transfer and wall temperature found in this case are not described by the relations valid for the normal heat transfer regime. I n Fig. 22 the t, and t,, variations along the tube length are plotted for upward liquid flow for several regimes of normal and diminished heat transfer (77). When qw = 221 x lo3 and 281 x lo3 W/m2 (Curves 1 and 2), normal regimes are observed. But when qw = 300 . lo3 W/m2 (Curve 3 ) , the wall temperature in the tube section length 10d15d increases sharply and becomes approximately 100C higher than the expected one.

wall temperature at the maximum point increases, the maximum t , displaces towards the tube entry, and the region with high wall temperature expands covering a substantial part of the tube. T h e data on decreased heat transfer regimes have been obtained only for water and they are far from being complete.

which naturally can also be the outlet); the area above these curves corresponds to decreased heat transfer regimes. When decreased heat transfer regimes appear i n a certain range of heat fluxes and other parameters, considerable pressure fluctuations a s well as fluctuations in TrVand T , at the entrance are observed. For example, according to (77), when P = 245 bar the amplitude of the pressure fluctuations reached 25 bar. T h e appearance of diminished heat transfer regimes can probably be attributed to the change in flow mechanisms and, in particular, turbulent diffusivity processes caused by large changes in the physical properties over the flow cross section. Free convection appearing as a consequence of large density gradients can affect considerably the flow regime. This is confirmed by the fact that diminished heat transfer regimes are observed in an upward flow in heated tubes and are not found in a downward flow. In the latter case normal regimes occur under the same conditions which may be apparently connected with niore intensive fluid mixing when the directions of forced and free convection at the wall are opposite. T h e small amount of available data ( 9 6 ) shows that, in the case of a horizontal flow, diminished heat transfer regimes can occur too, though not in a very pronounced manner. Improved heat transfer regimes were discovered by Goldmann ( 6 4 ) and again later on in other works; for example, in (97). T h e experiments described hy Goldmann were performed on a water flow in an electrically heated tube 1.58 m m in diameter and 203 m m in length.

boiling and enhancement with the nucleate boiling of a subcooled liquid. This analogy is based on the following considerations. T h e supercritical region can be conventionally subdivided into two regions with a line of maximum heat capacity on isobars serving as their border. T h e region of T < T , is conventionally considered a liquid phase and the region T > T , is taken to be a vapor phase. T h e fact that both of the above< T , and T, 2 T , at mentioned phenomena occur when T,, sufficiently high heat fluxes14 (i.e., when densities in the core and at the wall are substantially different) was the reason for an attempt to explain these phenomena by the processes similar to those which take place during subcooled liquid boiling. However, these assumptions demand careful experimental verification and theoretical consideration.
VII. Conclusion
All that has been said regarding heat transfer in turbulent pipe flow can be summarized in the following manner. T h e analytical methods allow us to describe heat transfer mechanisms for constant liquid properties quite satisfactorily and to take into account the influence of the variation of physical properties with temperature versus heat transfer and skin friction in a number of important cases. Disagreement between theoretical and experimental results observed in other cases, in particular, with a considerable change in physical properties over the flow cross section, may be attributed to imperfect methods of estimating the effect of the variation of physical properties on turbulent diffusivity. Therefore, further refinement of the analytical methods demands enhanced study of turbulent diffusivity with respect to variable physical properties. Important experimental material has been accumulated on heat transfer and skin friction for variable physical properties. However, certain portions of this material possess relatively low accuracy that prevents its successful use. For a number of important cases there has been no systematic data collection, or that which is available is scanty and contradictory. Therefore, the need for further experimental investigations, with a high degree of accuracy, into the fluid mechanics and heat transfer for variable physical properties is quite urgent.
l4 T h e former takes place at relatively lower heat fluxes; the latter occurs at much higher heat fluxes.
