Abstract

In the paper we briefly show the heat/momentum transfer analogies of Reynolds and the followers for turbulent flow. Next, we discuss differences between turbulent and laminar flow and turn to the Lévêque analogy for laminar flow. This enable to derive heat transfer coefficients (Nusselt numbers) based on the flow friction results that include the viscous friction only. Some examples of the Lévêque analogy applications are given, like flow through packed beds, wire gauzes, short-channel structures (short monoliths), structured catalyst carriers (tube inserts). The Lévêque analogy gave satisfactory accuracy when compared to experiments, with the flow friction derived on the theoretical basis.
