Heat Transfer Introduction
Heat transfer (or heat) is thermal energy in transit due to a spatial
temperature difference
Three types of heat transfer processes

Types of process heating systems


Fire Heaters

Analogies between Fluids and Heat Transfer Mechanisms
- Conduction is analogous to the classical fluids illustration of a layer by layer
movement between a static plate and a moving plate

- We can therefore think of conduction analogous to a frying pan where heat gets
conducted from the heat source to the pan, to ultimately the food (i.e. layer by
Analogies between Fluids and Heat Transfer Mechanisms

Convection is more analogous to the classical fluids example of fluid being driven
by a pressure gradient (where P1 > P2)
P1 P2

We can then think of convection as bulk movement by bulk flow

Conduction is the process in which heat is transferred
directly through a substance when there is a difference
in temperature

Example: The handle of a metal spoon becomes hot

after sitting in hot coffee
Follows Fouriers Law:

where Q is the amount of heat transfer, k is a thermal conductivity, A is area

T is the difference in temperature, and L is material thickness

This process occurs mainly in solid materials.

Materials with higher k values are more

conductive, while materials with lower k
values are more insulating.

Radiation is energy emitted from matter in the
form of rays or waves.

Unlike conduction and convection it does not

require the presence of a material medium.

Example: Heat emissions felt on ones hands during

a campfire.
- Radiation emitted by a surface is a function of the thermal energy of
matter and the rate of energy released per unit surface area (W/m2).
derived from the Stefan-Boltzmann Law
- The upper limit of Emissive Power is coined as the ideal radiator or
blackbody EB

TS is the absolute temperature of the surface (K)

EB=TS4 is the Stefan-Boltzman constant (5.67x10-8 W/m2*K4)

- Not all radiation is an ideal radiator and as such we add a limiting

coefficient such that
is the emissivity coefficient from 0 to 1, and varies depends on material
- The rate of irradiation (i.e. rate of radiation on
the surface) can be designated as G
- Absorption of radiation increases the thermal
energy of the absorbing material
- Not all radiation is absorbed, we thus include
a limiting coefficient such that
G is the rate of irradiation
Gabs is the irradiation absorbed
is the absorptivity coefficient bounded from 0 to 1

- It is important to know that depends on the

surface of the material and the source of
radiation into such material
The net rate of radiation heat transfer from the
surface becomes;

qrad= q/A=Bb(Ts)-G = (TS4-TSur4)

In real world situations we simultaneously put

heat transfer along with radiation such that the
total rate of heat transfer from the surface

Boundary Conditions
Most Common Boundary Conditions:

Constant Surface Temperature

Constant Surface Heat Flux
Convective Surface Condition
One-Dimensional Steady State Heat
Conduction with no Heat Gen.
Constant Surface Temperature One-Dimensional Steady State Heat Conduction with no
Heat Gen.

where k is constant
Constant Surface Flux

Adiabatic = no heat flux

Convective Surface Condition

We can use heat equations and boundary conditions to determine
temperature profile

As chemical engineers we are to understand the
fundamentals of heat transfer so that we can apply
them to engineering processes such as:

- Heat Exchangers
- Distillation Columns
- Maintaining Desired Reactor Temperatures
- Designing novelty Insulating Materials

Understanding these processes allows us to better

design and maximize the parameters of these applications
to ensure desired results.
