Stanton Number

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Stanton Number is a dimensionless number calculates the heat transfer into a fluid to the thermal capacity of fluid.

formula

\( St = \frac { h  } {C_p \rho v} \)

\( St = \frac { h  } {C_p G} \)

Where:

\(St\) = Stanton Number

\(h\) = heat transfer coefficient

\(C_p\) = heat capacity

\(\rho\) = density

\(v\) = velocity

\(G\) = mass velocity
