Stanton Number

Stanton number is proportional to { (heat transfered) / (thermal capacity of fluid) } and is used in heat transfer in general and forced convection calculations in particular. It is equivalent to (Nu / (Re.Pr)). It is normally defined in one of the following forms :

 

or

 

Where:

 

Cp

=

Heat capacity

 

G

=

Mass velocity

h

=

Heat transfer coefficient

rho

=

Density

V

=

Velocity
