Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer 1-71 The rate of radiation heat transfer between a person and the surrounding surfaces at specified temperatur es is to be determined in summer and in winter. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer by convection is not considered. 3 The person is completely surrounded by the interior surfaces of the room. 4 The surrounding surfaces are at a uniform temperature. Properties The emissivity of a person is given to be ε = 0.95 Analysis Noting that the person is completely enclosed by the surrounding surfaces, the net rates of
