Definition: | quantity of dimension 1 characterizing the transfer of heat by forced convection in a fluid, defined by $St=\frac{K}{\rho \text{\hspace{0.05em}}v\text{\hspace{0.05em}}\text{\hspace{0.05em}}{c}_{p}}$, where K is the coefficient of heat transfer, ρ is mass density, v is fluid speed, and c_{p} is specific heat capacity at constant pressureNOTE The Stanton number is the ratio of Nusselt number | ||

NOTE The Stanton number is the ratio of Nusselt number *Nu* to Péclet number *Pe*, thus *St* = *Nu*/*Pe*. It is combined with the Prandtl number in the heat transfer factor (113-04-55).
