5.2. SIMPLIFIED CASE FOR SYSTEMS WITH NEGLIGIBLE INTERNAL RESISTANCE

5.2A. Basic Equation

We begin our treatment of transient heat conduction by analyzing a simplified case. In this situation we consider a solid which has a very high thermal conductivity or very low internal conductive resistance compared to the external surface resistance, where convection occurs from the external fluid to the surface of the solid. Since the internal resistance is very small, the temperature within the solid is essentially uniform at any given time.

An example would be a small, hot cube of steel at T0 K at time t = 0, suddenly immersed in a large bath of cold water at T which is held constant with time. Assume that the heat-transfer coefficient h in W/m2 · ...
