Calculation of the individual heat transfer coefficient

Typical Nu - Pr - Re relationship

Nu - Pr - Re relationship

The logarithmic graph describes the Nusselt number as a function of the Prandtl and Reynolds numbers.

The function is usually written as:

Nu = C·Re x·Pr y

where x normally is 0.8 and y normally is 0.3 - 0.4.
