HEAT TRANSFER Mechanisms of Heat Transfer: (1) Conduction whereQ is theamount of heat, Btu, transferred in timet, h k is thethermal conductivity, Btu/[h ft 2 ( o F/ft)] A is thearea of heat transfer normal to heat flow, ft 2 T is thetemperature, o F x is thethickness of theconduction path, ft. (2) Convection h is theheat transfer coefficient, Btu/[h ft 2 o F]. dx dT A k dt dQ - = T A h dt dQ = ChE 4253 - Design I

HEAT TRANSFER Mechanisms of Heat Transfer: (3) Radiation where σ is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant = 0.1713 10 -8 Btu/(h ft 2 o R 4 ) ε is theemissivity of surface A is the exposed area for heat transfer, ft 2 T is absolutetemperature, o R. 4 T A dt dQ ε σ = ChE 4253 - Design I
Heat Transfer - Steady State (1) Conduction where q is the rateof heat transfer, Btu/h (2) Convection (3) Radiation (from pipe) where h r is a fictitious heat transfer coefficient based on therateat which heat leaves thesurfaceof thepipe dueas radiation.

Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient Definition of the overall heat transfer coefficient, U U [=] Btu/(h ft 2 o F) DT tot is the total temperaturedifference (overall driving force for the process). Important: Theoverall heat transfer coefficient, U, is an empiricism. It is a very useful engineering concept that “sweeps thedetails under therug”. It is defined in combination with thearea A (e.g., inside/outsidearea of a pipe). tot T A U q = ChE 4253 - Design I
General correlation: Intensity=Potential/Resistance Rate= Driving Force/Resistance Applies for electricity, flow, flux etc. Heat transport: Overall resistance, R=1/UA Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient tot T A U q = r in r out Heat flux ChE 4253 - Design I
