CHAPTER FOURHeat Conduction and Materials Processing

The preceding chapters presented fundamental tools needed to model materials processing operations. We now begin to apply these concepts, considering problems that involve heat conduction. Heat conduction is the predominant phenomenon in many important applications, including heat treatment of steel, metal casting, welding, and polymer injection molding. Heat conduction is also a good place to start, because it involves just one equation, the energy balance, and one variable, the temperature. In this chapter we introduce several simple problems, building in complexity, and then provide an extensive treatment of heat conduction with phase change. The emphasis will be on how to approach problems, ...
