Chapter 3 Steady Heat Conduction3-37Heat is to be conducted along a circuit board with a copper layer on one side. The percentages of heat conduction along the copper and epoxy layers as well as the effective thermal conductivity of the board are to be determined. Assumptions1Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer is one-dimensional since heat transfer from the side surfaces is disregarded 3 Thermal conductivities are constant. PropertiesThe thermal conductivities are given to be k= 386 W/m⋅°C for copper and 0.26 W/m⋅°C for epoxy layers. Analysis We take the length in the direction of heat transfer to be L and the width of the board to be w.
