Fundamentals of Heat Transfer

On April 4th, 2011, posted in: Technical - Reflective by Comments Off on Fundamentals of Heat Transfer

Heat flows from a hot medium to a cold medium in three ways By radiation from a warm surface to a cooler surface through an air space By conduction through solid or fluid materials By convection, which involves the physical movement of air 1. Convection Conduction is the direct flow of heat through a material..
