NANYANG TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY COMBINED HEAT TRANSFER BY FREE CONVECTION AND RADIATION 2. INTRODUCTION There are three fundamental modes to heat transfer, namely conduction, convection and radiation. Each of the modes of transfer has its own unique way of transferring thermal energy. Each of them also has their own equations that characterize the flow of heat and also their respective heat transport coefficient terms. All three modes of heat transfer are generally present in varying degrees in almost physical problems concerning heat transfer. The next three sub-chapters will briefly explain some of the concepts in heat transfer. 2.1 CONDUCTION Conduction deals with the transfer of thermal energy through a material without itself moving. It is described as the flow of heat due to interactions between molecules in a material. When this happens, there is a transfer of energy between more energetic molecules (due to being in a region of higher temperature) and molecules possessing higher energy (due to being in a region of lower temperature). This phenomenon is fundamentally a diffusion process that occurs at a microscopic level. Whenever a temperature gradient exists in a medium, heat conduction will almost definitely occur. At a more macroscopic level, the heat transfer per unit area normal to the direction of
