|This module explores the various ways heat transfer can occur, introducing conduction, convection and radiation. The associated equations are presented including Fourier’s law, the 1-D heat diffusion equation, Newton’s law of cooling, the lumped capacity solution, and Stefan-Boltzmann law. This module displays heat transfer concepts through images, MapleSim examples, and interactive components to reinforce understanding.
