Effect of internal heating on sensible behavior of sugarcane juice in a stainless steel pot

In this research work, the natural convective behavior during internal heating of sugarcane juice in a stainless steel pot for jaggery making is reported on.Various indoor experiments are conducted for internal heating of sugarcane juice in stainless steel pot by varying heat inputs from 200 to 360 watts. The experimental data are used to determine the values of constants in the Nusselt number expression by simple linear regression method and then the values of the convective heat transfer coefficients are determined. The convective heat transfer coefficients are observed to increase with an increase in rate of heat input as well as in the operating temperature.The experimental errors in terms of percent uncertainty are also evaluated
