Fourier’s Law • A rate equation that allows determination of the conduction heat flux from knowledge of the temperature distribution in a medium Fourier’s Law • Its most general (vector) form for multidimensional conduction is: q k T ′′ = - ∇ Implications: – Heat transfer is in the direction of decreasing temperature (basis for minus sign). – Direction of heat transfer is perpendicular to lines of constant temperature ( isotherms ). – Heat flux vector may be resolved into orthogonal components. – Fourier’s Law serves to define the thermal conductivity of the medium / k q T → → ′′ ≡ -
