_________________
when dealing with composite
materials

Introduction
o
In Chapter 2 we derived the Heat Diffusion equation for the three coordinate
systems and applied it to several applications for the calculation of temperature
profiles and heat transfer rates.
In Chapter 3, we will narrow our focus a bit more
to look at the special cases of one-dimensional, steady state conduction.
These
simplifications are very prevalent in heat transfer applications, and the
mathematics of the solution processes are very simple.
The first part of the chapter
will review the general HDE for the three geometries and also introduce the
concept of
thermal resistance
.
The use of
thermal resistance
for systems of
composite materials will greatly simplify the mathematical analysis.
Next, we will
consider how
uniform internal heat generation
affects the HDE solution.
Finally,
we will consider a
major
application of heat transfer – heat transfer from
extended
surfaces (fins)
.
This chapter is one of the longest chapters in the text, and it will
likely take 2 weeks to cover all the material.
Getting a good grasp on this material
is important.
I would rank Chapter 3 as one of the most important chapters of the
text.

solving for a concentration distribution and applying Fick’s Law)
