Chapter 12. Introduction to Heat Transfer

12.0 Chapter Objectives

On completion of this chapter a student should be able to:

• Use both the American and SI units of energy when solving heat transfer problems.

• Apply the principle of conservation of energy ( i.e. energy balance) for reacting and non-reacting systems

• Recognize that a temperature difference is the driving potential for heat transfer

• Know the difference between a heat flux and a heat rate

• Realize that heat transfer may occur by one of the three basic mechanisms of heat transfer: conduction, convection and radiation

• Understand the basics of Fourier’s law and its similarity to other rate-transfer processes

• Explain the physical significance of thermal conductivity and its ...
