Introduction Although heat transfer and temperature are closely related, they are of a different nature. Temperature has only magnitude it is a scalar quantity. Heat transfer has direction as well as magnitude it is a vector quantity. We work with a coordinate system and indicate direction with plus or minus signs.
The driving force for any form of heat transfer is the temperature difference. The larger the temperature difference, the larger the rate of heat transfer. Three prime coordinate systems: rectangular (T(x, y, z, t)) , cylindrical (T(r, J, z, t)), spherical (T(r, J, U, t)).
Classification of conduction heat transfer problems: steady versus transient heat transfer, multidimensional heat transfer, heat generation.
Steady versus Transient Heat Transfer Steady implies no change with time at any point within the medium
Transient implies variation with time or time dependence
Multidimensional Heat Transfer Heat transfer problems are also classified as being: one-dimensional, two dimensional, three-dimensional.
In the most general case, heat transfer through a medium is three-dimensional. However, some problems can be classified as two- or one-dimensional depending on the relative magnitudes of heat transfer rates in different directions and the level of accuracy desired.
The rate of heat conduction through a medium in a specified direction (say, in the x-direction) is expressed by Fourier s law of heat conduction for one-dimensional heat conduction as:& ! kA dT Qcond dx (W) (2-1)
Heat is conducted in the direction of decreasing temperature, and thus the temperature gradient is negative when heat is conducted in the positive xdirection.
General Relation for Fourier s Law of Heat Conduction The heat flux vector at a point P on the surface of the figure must be perpendicular to the surface, and it must point in the direction of decreasing temperature If n is the normal of the isothermal surface at point P, the rate of heat conduction at that point can be expressed by Fourier s law as & ! kA dT Qn (W) (2-2) dn

Heat Generation Examples: electrical energy being converted to heat at a rate of I2R, fuel elements of nuclear reactors, exothermic chemical reactions.
Heat generation is a volumetric phenomenon. The rate of heat generation units : W/m3 or Btu/h ft3. The rate of heat generation in a medium may vary with time as well as position within the medium. The total rate of heat generation in a medium of volume V can be determined from & & (2-5) E ! e dV (W)gen

Exercise 2 A 2-kW resistance heater with thermal conductivity k = 15 W/m.K, diameter D = 0.4 cm, and length L = 50 cm is used to boil water by immersing it in water. Assuming the variation of thermal conductivity of the wire with temperature to be negligible, obtain the differential equation that describes the variation of the temperature in the wire during steady state operation.
BMCG 2123 Heat Transfer
AnalysisThe resistance wire of a water heater is considered to be a very long cylinder since its length is more than 100 times its diameter. Also heat is generated uniformly in the wire and the conditions on the outer surface of the wire are uniform. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect the temperature in the wire to vary in the radial r direction only and thus the heat transfer to be one-dimensional. Then we have T=T(r) during steady operation since the temperature in this case depends on r only.1/28/2011 BMCG 2123 Heat Transfer 24
