Determination of the heat-transfer characteristics in a channel of annular cross section with spiral fins
The characteristics of heat transfer in the developed turbulent flow of a viscous incompressible liquid in a slot channel of annular cross section with spiral fins are analyzed. Expressions are obtained for calculating the Nusselt numbers at the convex and concave walls of the channel.
