Nusselt number, Nu, is the dimensionless parameter characterizing convective heat transfer. It is defined as

where α is convective heat transfer coefficient, L is representative dimension (e.g., diameter for pipes), and λ is the thermal conductivity of the fluid. Nusselt number is a measure of the ratio between heat transfer by convection (α) and heat transfer by conduction alone (λ/L).

Convective heat transfer relationships are usually expressed in terms of Nusselt number as a function of Reynolds Number and Prandtl Number.
