In this paper, we critically reconsider and discuss the models used in one of our previous work to calculate the local convective heat flux for forced air-flows inside narrow rectangular channel, in order to evaluate the limitations which may be inherent with them. To this end, several numerical FEM models have been developed in COMSOL™ and used to analyze in depth previous data processing procedures; furthermore, experimental tests are made on the channel materials, to determine their thermal conductivities and radiative properties. Here, the results of this analysis are presented and discussed.

Abstract

In this paper, we critically reconsider and discuss the models used in one of our previous work to calculate the local convective heat flux for forced air-flows inside narrow rectangular channel, in order to evaluate the limitations which may be inherent with them. To this end, several numerical FEM models have been developed in COMSOL™ and used to analyze in depth previous data processing procedures; furthermore, experimental tests are made on the channel materials, to determine their thermal conductivities and radiative properties. Here, the results of this analysis are presented and discussed.
