Transient Conduction Transient Conduction Transient Conduction • A heat transfer process for which the temperature varies with time , as well as location within a solid. • It is initiated whenever a system experiences a change in operating conditions and proceeds until a new steady state ( thermal equilibrium ) is achieved. • It can be induced by changes in: – surface convection conditions ( ), , hT • Solution Techniques –T h e Lumped Capacitance Method Exact Solutions The Finite-Difference Method – surface radiation conditions ( ), , rs u r – a surface temperature or heat flux, and/or – internal energy generation.
