Non-Isothermal Incompressible Fluid Flow



A cold fluid flows through a heated wall channel. The walls of channel are kept at constant temperature. Water flows through a channel of 6.0 cm in height and 120 cm in length. The inlet temperature and velocity of the water are 20°C and 0.006 m/s, respectively. The channel walls are kept at 80°C. Determine the velocity and temperature profiles and rate of heat transfer. Assume that the width of the channel is unity.
