1 CHME 333 Workbook Chapter 4 – Two-dimensional, Steady State Conduction Heat Transfer Objectives o Understand how to use the Conduction Shape Factor and the Dimensionless Conduction Heat Rate to solve problems for common configurations Introduction We don’t have time in this course to study all of Chapter 4, but we will study the use of the Shape Factor for solving multi-dimensional heat transfer problems for common configurations. The Shape Factor is another simplification that engineers use to handle complex systems. Rigorous analysis of multi-dimensional heat transfer requires solving nonlinear partial differential equations. Some of these differential equations can be solved analytically, but the solutions often involve infinite series, and are cumbersome to work with. Graphical solutions are also available in specialized reference books. Numerical methods are often used to obtain solutions to these equations, rather than analytical solutions.
