Topic: Re: How do I find the heat transfer coefficient for arctic diesel?

A heat transfer coefficient must be determined by flow conditions and physical/thermal properties of a substance.  Critical to this determination will be the viscosity vs. temperature data for the diesel, which may have to be measured.  Refer to Hewitt, Shires & Bott – “Process Heat Transfer” for methods to determine heat transfer coefficients.
