Forced convection heat transfer mechanism is found very commonly in everyday life, including central heating, air conditioning, steam turbines and in many other machines.
The forced convection apparatus has a Constant speed fan with variable flow control valve The heater is located at the centre of the test section. The forced air flowing through the pipe causes the heat transfer due to convection process. This temperature difference between up and down stream can be determined using the thermocouples placed along the test section.
