Based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics simultaneously, the effect of fouling on the thermodynamic performance of convective heat transfer process through a duct with constant wall temperature and constant heat flux is investigated analytically when the flow is turbulent. A criterion evaluating the effect of fouling is defined as the entropy generation increase rate per unit heat transfer rate. The effect of Reynolds number (not considering fouling) and dimensionless inlet temperature difference and dimensionless wall heat flux on the entropy generation increase rate per unit heat transfer rate is discussed. In addition, the results with constant wall temperature are compared with that with constant wall heat flux.
