Boundary Layer Convection Codes for Students in Java
The updated versions of these applets are available at
Here we present simple JAVA computer codes that are intended for student use solving the homework problems in a text such as "Heat Transfer" by J. P.
Holman (McGraw Hill, 1986) and other similar problems on a PC or Work Station. These codes are specifically not intended as general purpose codes for use by working
professionals in the field. The goal has been to keep the formulation, logic and programming as simple as possible so that the student can easily grasp the flow of the
calculations. There are four separate codes at this stage -
Details of how to run these codes are available in the paper HEAT TRANSFER CODES FOR STUDENTS IN JAVA
by William J. Devenport, Joseph A. Schetz and Yu Wang.
- WALZHT which computes incompressible laminar boundary layers with heat transfer using the Thwaites-Walz / Smith Spalding integral methods.
- MOSESHT which computes incompressible turbulent boundary layers using Moses' method extended to include heat transfer.
