In addition to the aforementioned grid-dependency study, the present simulation results have also been compared against the available results of other authors [29, 30] for the forced convection in Newtonian fluid from heated circular cylinder.
They found that their forced convection formula extrapolated to zero velocity predicts three times their formula for natural convection.
Secondly, through an analysis of the thermal transfer of the cooling trough of the headstock, the coefficient parameters were obtained for the forced convection heat exchange between the cooling troughs and the coolant, and a digital simulation model of the reconstructed machine tool was established.
Further, the values of wall heat flow density as well as the temperatures of the layers were measured at natural and forced convection.

It can be said that from the total heat transfer mechanism in the cooling tower, around 70 to 90 per cent is related to the evaporation process while 10 to 30 per cent is due to the forced convection heat transfer process.
The way to best control heat is by developing a forced conduction zone, a forced convection zone and a forced radiation zone in the tank simultaneously.
