This work describes a hybrid solution (analytical-numerical) for the heat transfer by forced convection in the entry section of a rectangular duct, considering the turbulent flow of dynamically developed and thermally developing Newtonian fluids. The energy equation is solved using the Classical Integral Transform Technique (CITT), while the associated eigenvalue problem is solved using the Generalized Integral Transform Technique (GITT). Different turbulence models with different formulations for velocity distribution and momentum eddy diffusivity are considered. The temperature field and the local Nusselt number are evaluated for various values of the Reynolds and Prandtl numbers. For each turbulence model considered, the thermal input length is determined. The results, presented in the form of tables and graphs, are compared with reference values in the specialized literature.
