How to Calculate Stanton Number (using basic fluid properties)?
Stanton Number (using basic fluid properties) calculator uses Stanton Number = External Convection Heat Transfer Coefficient/(Specific Heat Capacity*Fluid Velocity*Density) to calculate the Stanton Number, The Stanton number (using basic fluid properties), St, is a dimensionless number that measures the ratio of heat transferred into a fluid to the thermal capacity of fluid. The Stanton number is named after Thomas Stanton (engineer) (1865–1931). It is used to characterize heat transfer in forced convection flows. Stanton Number is denoted by St symbol.
How to calculate Stanton Number (using basic fluid properties) using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Stanton Number (using basic fluid properties), enter External Convection Heat Transfer Coefficient (h_{outside}), Specific Heat Capacity (c), Fluid Velocity (u_{Fluid}) & Density (ρ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Stanton Number (using basic fluid properties) calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1.998E-7 = 10/(4184*12*997).
