Modes of Heat Transfer

Exploring Engineering Fundamentals Logo
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. Keywords & Topics:
Heat transfer, introduction, thermal, conduction, convection, radiation, heat flux, Fourier’s law, Newton’s law of cooling, Stefan, Boltzmann, lumped capacity, Biot number, transport laws, black body, Wein’s law
Main Topic: Heat Transfer
