Energy loss characteristics of heat transfer and fluid flow due to forced convection of steady laminar flow of incompressible fluid inside channel with circular cross section and channel made of two parallel plates is analyzed. Energy loss profiles and heat transfer characteristics for different problems have been discussed. In each case energy loss due to heat transfer effect and fluid friction have been drived analytically. For energy loss calculations a new dimensionless number have been introduced that is the energy loss to total heat transfer rate ratio. The energy loss dimensionless number behavior have been compared with entropy generation dimensionless number behavior for various problems.
