Experimental Survey of Heat Transfer Enhancement for Kerosene with Polymer Additive under Turbulent Flow
Rafel Hekmat Hameed
 
Abstract: An experimental rig facility has been designed and constructed to study heat transfer enhancement of kerosene with polymer flow in the developing region in an 80 mm ID 6 m long pipe. The temperature at all sections and at pipe wall as well as the velocity of working fluid through all pipe sections are measured with different concentration ratio of polymer additive. It was found that the polymer additive has a clear effect on heat transfer coefficient and Nusselt number in the fully developed region under turbulent flow conditions. The heat transfer coefficient is affected Reynolds number and thermal conductivity of pipe material. Results show that the heat transfer coefficient decreases with increasing the amount of polymer concentration. Also, the coefficient of heat transfer decreases with increasing Reynolds number. It was found that reduction percentage values of heat transfer coefficient due to the concentration ratio of polymer additive are about 42-52.7% than the percentage values without polymer additive. A good agreement is seen between these results and the available resultsin the literature.
