# HEAT LOSS / GAIN FROM PIPE By Stephen Hall The heat loss from a pipe is calculated in two parts:

inside the pipe and outside the pipe User inputs are in RED Formulas in Column F are from the reference listed at the bottom of the worksheet Cell names (preceded by underscore_) are listed in Column B Data Inputs G ro mu k c T1 Fluid flowing inside the pipe Flow rate Density Viscosity Thermal conductivity Heat capacity Temperature of fluid entering pipe Pipe parameters inside diameter outside diameter pipe length pipe thermal conductivity emittance of pipe or insulation cover Insulation parameters insulation thickness insulation thermal conductivity Environmental conditions (pipe is outdoors) Temperature of the air Wind velocity 500 1,000 0.005 0.64 4,180 176 m3/h kg/m3 Pa-s W/m-K J/kg-K C

The formula depends on the flow region For Laminar flow (Re < 2100) use Sieder and Tate For this illustration, assume viscosity at wall = bulk viscosity Laminar flow calculation

N/A

For Transition flow (2100 <= Re <= 10000), use Hilpert correlation For this illustration, assume viscosity at wall = bulk viscosity It is NOT RECOMMENDED to be in the transitional region, and the correlation is iffy Transitional flow calculation N/A

For Turbulent flow (Re>10000) use Sieder and Tate (same as Dittus-Boettler, but with viscosity correction) For this illustration, assume viscosity at wall = bulk viscosity Turbulent flow calculation 3,440

Note: alternative turbulent flow correlation from Gnielinski Said to be valid from 3000 < Re < 5,000,000

Because the outside heat transfer coefficient will be so much less than the inside coefficient, it really doesn't make a practical difference if the calculation for inside coefficient is off hi inside heat transfer coefficient 3,440 W/m2-K

Calculate the outside heat transfer coefficient The outside coefficient is calculated differently for the cases of wind or no wind No wind = natural convection Three temperatures to be concerned with, ambient (T4), surface (T3), and average T5 = (T4 + T3)/2 Since T3 is a function of the heat transfer, this is an interative calculation First, assume a value for T3, the surface temperature T3_assume (cell is highlighted if iteration required) Calculate T5 T5
