This page calculates the
convective and radiative heat transfer from an isothermal vertical
plate. The average convective heat transfer coefficient is calculated
assuming natural convection conditions. The convection calculation automatically switches between laminar
and turbulent convection correlations based on Rayleigh number. The plate
transfers heat from only one of its sides. It is assumed to be
insulated on the other.
Define the plate size, surface temperature and ambient
temperature. You also need to define the fluid properties. This page will calculate a heat
transfer coefficient based on the flow conditions as well as the heat transfer by
convection and radiation from the isothermal plate.
To account for convection only, make the emissivity
equal to 0. Similarly, to account for radiation only, make the tehrmal
conductivity = 0.
