A dimensionless number, defined by the identity

where Taw is the adiabatic wall temperature, T1 and T01 are the temperature and the stagnation temperature, respectively in the external flow (in the case of external flow past a body) or the average bulk temperature and stagnation temperature in a given flow cross section (in the case of flow through a pipe).
