Stanton Number

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Dimensionless Numbers

Stanton number, abbreviated as St, is a dimensionless number that calculates the heat transfer into a fluid to the thermal capacity of fluid.

 

Stanton Number formulas

\(\large{ St = \frac { h  } {C \; \rho \; v} }\)   
\(\large{ St = \frac { h  } {C \; G} }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ St }\) = Stanton number

\(\large{ \rho }\)  (Greek symbol rho) = density

\(\large{ C }\) = heat capacity

\(\large{ h }\) = heat transfer coefficient

\(\large{ G }\) = mass velocity

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity
