Nusselt number

  1. Nov 18, 2015 #1
    The Nusselt number for an entire flat plate in the turbulent region has two different equations: One for Turbulent and one for Combined Laminar and Turbulent. How do I know when to use one or the other?

    Those empirical relations generally have a range of Reynolds number in which they are valid. It's likely they are different.
