University of Ottawa, CHG 2314, B. Kruczek 2 Introduction | What is heat transfer ? z Heat transfer is thermal energy in transit due to a temperature difference. | What is thermal energy ? z Thermal energy is associated with the translation, rotation, vibration and electronic states of the atoms and molecules that comprise matter. z It represents the cumulative effect of microscopic activities and is directly linked to the temperature of matter. | Heat transfer is commonly encountered in engineering systems and other aspects of life

University of Ottawa, CHG 2314, B. Kruczek 3 Introduction | Engineering heat transfer deals in general with two types of problems: z Rating problems – calculating rates of heat transfer at a specific temperature difference for an existing problem z Sizing problems – determination of the size of a system in order to transfer heat at a specified rate for a specified temperature difference What is the condensation rate of steam at a given flow rate of cooling water which is available at certain temperature in a given heat exchanger? What should be the thickens of insulation to prevent a worker’s injury on accidental contact with a pipe surface?

5 Modes of heat transfer | Conduction: Heat transfer in a solid or a stationary fluid (gas or liquid) due to the random motion of its constituent atoms, molecules and /or electrons Conduction Radiation Convection University of Ottawa, CHG 2314, B. Kruczek | Convection: Heat transfer due to the combined influence of bulk and random motion for fluid flow over a surface | Radiation: Energy that is emitted by matter due to changes in the electron configurations of its atoms or molecules and is transported as electromagnetic waves (or photons). NB1: Conduction and convection require the presence of temperature variations in a material medium.
