An equation for the transfer of heat from tubes to viscous fluids flowing through them. where w=film transfer factor, &=thermal conductivity, A =logarithmic mean temperature difference between tube and liquid, d=thickness of fluid stream, s =relative density of fluid, c =specific heat capacity of fluid, v=mean velocity of fluid in tube, and u/s =kinematic viscosity of the fluid,
