I'm trying to estimate the heat transfer coefficient from the surface of a hot object moving through open air. After much searching, all I can find is coefficients for sundry fluids confined within the tubes of heat exchangers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to calculate for a body at between 300-460K moving at up to 35m/s through air at about 300K.
