The Nusselt number represents the ratio of the heat transfer due to convection to the heat transfer due to conduction that would occur in a motionless fluid:
Nu = hL/k
h is the convective heat transfer coefficient
L is the characteristic length
k is the thermal conductivity
The Nusselt number can be also seen as non-dimensional temperature gradient at a surface.
