Martinelli Analogy
Reynolds Analogy
 demonstrates similarity of mechanism
 Pr = 1 and Sc = 1
Chilton-Colburn J-factor Analogy
 demonstrates numerical similarity
(implies that the correlation equations are not faithful
statements of the mechanism, but useful in predicting
numerical values of coefficients
 wider range of Pr and Sc
Martinelli Analogy
Martinelli Analogy (heat and momentum transfer)
 applicable to the entire range of Pr number
Assumptions:
1. The T driving forces between the wall and the fluid is small
enough so that μ/μ1 = 1
2. Well-developed turbulent flow exists within the test section
3. Heat flux across the tube wall is constant along the test
section
4. Both stress and heat flux are zero at the center of the tube
and increases linearly with radius to a maximum at the wall
5. At any point εq = ετ

EXAMPLE
Compare the value of the Nusselt number, given by the
appropriate empirical equation, to that predicted by the
Reynolds, Colburn and Martinelli analogies for each of the
following substances at Re= 100,000 and f = 0.0046. Consider
all substances at 1000F, subject to heating with the tube wall
at 1500F.
