The heat and momentum transfer analogy is employed to analyze the heat transfer phenomena for turbulent flow in concentric annuli. A modification of the velocity distribution due to Van Driest is assumed and equations in dimensionless form are developed to predict: (a) the position of maximum velocity in the annulus; (b) the friction factor-Reynolds number relationship, and (c) temperature distributions and heat transfer relations over a wide range of Reynolds number and Prandtl modulus.
