Heat Flow

The second law of thermodynamics states that


heat always flows from a hotter region to a cooler
region

All active and passive devices are sources of heat


and are always hotter than the average
temperature of their immediate surrounding

There are three mechanisms for heat transfer :


conduction, convection, radiation

Conduction

Thermal conduction is a process in which heat


flows through a solid,liquid, or gas or between two
media that in intimate contact with each other.

Dorminant mechanism for heat transfer within


solids involving transfer of kinetic thermal energy T1 > T2
from one electron to another.
T1

Conduction through dielectric solids is entirely q


due to lattice vibrations
T2
While through metallic solids has the added
energy transport by free electron

Thermal transfer via electron is similar to that of
electric charge good electrical conductors such
as copper and silver are good thermal conductors

Liquid is also a good thermal conductor but to a


lesser extent than solids
Thermal conductivity of gases is quite low.
When liquid changes to a gas thereis a loosening of
molecular bonds compare to liquid. Gas molecules are free
to move in any direction and the only constraint are
randomly collisions which results in significantly lower
probability that contact areas will exist

Think of molecular activity - translational, rotational
and vibrational energy of the molecules.
Collision between molecules occurs to transfer energy.
No bulk motion of material.

Electrical analogies of Thermal Resistance,

Thermal characteristic can be simplified by considering thermal


properties analogous to electrical properties

The temperature drop T is similar to voltage drop

When several materials are stacked in series such as a die attached with
epoxy to a substrate wihich is soldered to a package base , the
equivalent thermal resistance equiv is

equiv = 1 + 2 + 3 + + N

Temperature at particular interface may calculated as:

T j , j 1 Theat sin k Qk j , j 1:hs


where Tj,j-1= temperature at interface of layers j and j-1
j,j-1:hs = sum of thermal resistances from interface of layers j and j-1 to the
heat sink

The Fig 5.7 illustrate the stack
up of thermal resistances
using the electrical circuit
analogy

Temperature at the interface of


two layers cannot change
discontinously

Ex. Temp at the bottom of the die will be the same as the temperature at
the top of the die attach material (in the Fig denoted as T1-2)

the parallel equivalent of the individual thermal resistance

Convection
Convection is the transfer of thermal energy between two surfaces as a
consequence of a relative velocity between them

It occurs only in fluid where the transfer mechanism is mixing of the


fluids
In practical , one is solid surface and the other is fluid surface

Heat loss due to Newtonian cooling or convection cooling is proportional


to the temperature difference, T , between them.

Two types of convection cooling i) natural ii) forced

Natural convection, is due entirely to differences in density within the


fluids resulting from different temperatures

Forced convection, thermal energy is transfered from solid to adjacent


fluid particles as in natural convection but the subsequent fluid action
occurs through artficially induced fluid motion generated by pumps or
blowers.
