Methodology Specify appropriate form of the heat equation . Solve for the temperature distribution . Apply Fourier’s law to determine the heat flux . Simplest Case: One-Dimensional , Steady-State Conduction with No Thermal Energy Generation . Common Geometries: The Plane Wall : Described in rectangular ( x ) coordinate. Area perpendicular to direction of heat transfer is constant (independent of x ). The Tube Wall : Radial conduction through tube wall. The Spherical Shell : Radial conduction through shell wall.
