The image that contains the equations can be found over at

It doesn't look like a pure physics equation, but I figured I might
have some luck in here. Thanks for your time and courtesy!

You're right. It *doesn't* look like a pure physics equation, but it *does*
look like the kind of ad hoc expression that might be developed by an
engineer, especially the alternate expressions for k in (2) that depend on
the relative values of H/W and sqrt(3).

Also, the variables used are all consistent with variables used in fluid
flow: Q is often used for a flow rate, the Greek letter eta (the "n"-like
letter) for viscosity, T for temperature, v for velocity, the Greek letter
gamma (the "y"-like letter) for specific weight, H for hydrostatic head
(height), W for weight, T for temperature or kinetic energy or time or
torque, k for various constants, A for cross-sectional area, and d is a
symbol for a difference.

This collection of variables would seem to apply to flow of a viscous liquid
through a conduit. I can't help you much beyond that as I am a chemist, not
an engineer.

Dear Steve Lee:

tadchem has the right of it. Through sheer intuition and years of abuse at
the "hands" of engineers, he has correctly identified empirical relations
for heat transfer. The Q_dot is the giveaway, and it is "heat flow" (units
of watt or its ilk). I would guess some sort of convective heat transfer
from a surface "H" high, by "L" wide. Will it be necessary for me to dig
my Heat Transfer book out, and name the relation, or at least its
progenitor?

Thank you, David. I was stalled over why the 'dT' term would have been
there, but then I have never had to calculate characteristics of heat
exchangers before.

Hi Tom,

It is poorly presented. This is usually "deltaT" or "/\T", representing
the difference between bulk fluid and.exchanger "root" temperature (if I
recall corrrectly). It should not have been presented in the "universally
recognized" differential form, even though no other "d_" term was present.

Leave it to an engineer...

I understood that dT referred to w temperature *difference* rather than a
*differential.* I was just a bit slow in completing the relation:

[viscosity] + [temperature difference] => [convection]

Thanks again.

Understood. Welcome. And you are never "slow". ;>)
