If the Prandtl number is 1, the two boundary layers are the same thickness. If the Prandtl number is greater than 1, the thermal boundary layer is thinner than the velocity boundary layer. If the Prandtl number is less than 1, which is the case for air at standard conditions, the thermal boundary layer is thicker than the velocity boundary layer.

Table of Contents.   With the increase in the prandtl number the nusselt number also increases so the convection heat transfer rate also increases. Prandtl number is the ratio of momentum diffusivity to the thermal diffusivity. So with the increase in prandtl number s.

The present paper is an extension of the Prandtl-type mixing-length treatment of this phenomenon developed 4 7 by Priestley and Bbhm-Vitense. The mixing-length theory of turbulent thermal convection in a gravitationally unstable fluid is extended to yield the dependence of Nusselt number H∕H0 on both Prandtl number σ and Rayleigh.

The one-equation model of turbulence is applied to the turbulent thermal convection between horizontal plates maintained at constant temperatures. A pseudo-three-layer model is used consisting of a conduction sublayer adjacent to the plates, a turbulent region within which the mixing length increases linearly, and a turbulent core within which the mixing length is a by: 2.

The basis of Prandtl's mixing length hypothesis is an analogy with the kinetic theory of gases, based on the assumption that turbulent eddies, like gas molecules, are discrete entities that collide and exchange momentum at discrete intervals.

The turbulent Prandtl number (Pr t) is a non-dimensional term defined as the ratio between the momentum eddy diffusivity and the heat transfer eddy diffusivity.

It is useful for solving the heat transfer problem of turbulent boundary layer flows. The simplest model for Pr t is the Reynolds analogy, which yields a turbulent Prandtl number of experimental data, Pr t has an average value.

The Prandtl Number - Pr - is a dimensionless number approximating the ratio of momentum diffusivity (kinematic viscosity) to thermal diffusivity - and is often used in heat transfer and free and forced convection calculations.

The Prandtl number can for calculations be expressed as. Pr = μ c p / k (1). where μ = absolute or dynamic viscosity [kg/(m s)], [lb m /(ft h)]. We link these regimes with a possible global bifurcation in the turbulent mean flow.

We further show how a scaling theory could be used to describe these two regimes through a single universal by: The physical phenomena of turbulent mixed convection is studied with the aid of the program OpenFOAM using Large Eddy Simulation (LES) as a turbulent model.
