This paper is a fundamental study on the irreversibility of single-phase laminar convective heat transfer over a flat plate with isothermal and constant heat flux boundary conditions. It quantifies the losses due to viscous momentum transfer losses and heat transfer losses and presents the irreversibility of the convective flow based on the entropy generation (EG) method. This paper determines the entropy generation for incompressible, single phase, laminar flow for large and small Prandtl numbers over a flat plate with isothermal and constant heat flux boundary conditions using von Kármán’s integral theory.
