    I have gathered experimental data regarding this heat transfer problem. Unfortunately right now there is no simple way to measure discharge water temperature.

    On the theoretical approach developed on post # 10 of abovementioned thread, a water temperature increase of 50 °C was considered.

    Please help me with the same numerical development, but now for a 25 °C water temperature increase.
    Question: In this case, for the same steel considerations, the water flow is going to be twice as the one for 50 °C, which was 4.6 liters/sec? If not, what is going to be the amount of water flow?

    Sorry, the thread number in the post doesn't link to anything related to heat transfer.

    Please repost a valid link to your thread.

    Here is the thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=304738

    It's from 2009, so that's why it was closed (old threads are generally locked after a few years). I can merge this new thread back into the old one and unlock it all if folks think that's a better way to handle the new information.

    Thank you, berkeman.

    Indeed, it´s an old thread. Unfortunately in 2009 I had to deal with many other issues at work, and had to put the problem aside. But right now I´m involved again with the heat transfer problem, so I am asking for more help on the theoretical side.
