Homework Help: Forced Convection

  1. Apr 22, 2007 #1
    Hi everyone,
    Ive come here not for an answer but to see if anyone can point me in the direction of a published book or equivilent to help me with some simple convection ideas.

    Im looking to basically outline the relationship between air velocity and heat in a forced convection situation. Its to do with computers so for example....

    A CPU produces a constant 30W of heat with an airflow of 1.18 m/s. An increase in air velocity to 2.36m/s will incure a heat reduction of **W. Excuse the rather basic ideas here but this is alittle side project to an acoustics assignment.

    Anyone got any ideas of books which might show me some relevant equations? I have had a look at a few but cant find much to help me.
