Abstract: Flow and unsteady heat transfer around a moving and rotating sphere is considered as it passes through the thermal entrance region of a heated pipe. The flow is incompressible and viscous with constant properties, and the heated pipe wall is kept at a constant temperature. Two Peclet numbers of 25 and 100 are considered along with two sphere-to-pipe-diameter ratios of 0.2 and 0.4. The flow is made three dimensional by an eccentric positioning of the sphere inside the pipe. The governing equations are solved by…
