Semiempirical Model of Convective Heat Transfer of Turbulent Gases

On the basis of the Prandtl semiempirical wall-turbulence hypothesis, the author has substantiated theoretically the possibility of setting boundary conditions to the equations of a mathematical model of turbulent motion and convective heat transfer of a gaseous medium on a coarse grid. It has been shown that the results of numerical simulation are in agreement with experimental data on the heat transfer of air and high-temperature gases in tubes.
