What is Eckert Number
The Eckert number is a dimensionless number, named after Ernst R. G. Eckert. The Eckert number is defined as the ratio of the advective mass transfer to the heat dissipation potential.
The Eckert number provides a measure of the kinetic energy of the flow relative to the enthalpy difference across the thermal boundary layer. It is used to characterize heat dissipation in high-speed flows for which viscous dissipation is significant.
