Heat Transfer: Heat Transfer Define As The Transmission of Energy From One Region to another Region as a result of Temperature Gradient. • Conduction: Conduction Transfer Heat via Direct Molecular Collision. Area of Greater kinetic energy will Transfer Thermal energy to an area with lower kinetic energy. • Convection: When a Fluid, such as air or Liquid, is heated and then travels away from the source, it carries the thermal energy along. This type of Heat Transfer is called convection. • Radiation: Thermal Radiation Generates from the emission of electromagnetic waves. These waves carry the energy away from the emitting object.

Natural And Force Convection • Natural Convection is a type of heat transfer, in which the fluid motion is not generated by any external source (like a pump, fan, suction pump etc.) but only by density differences in the fluid occurring due to temperature gradients. • The Example of free convection is a heated plate when kept in an atmosphere, it gets cooled by air. Here the circulation of air take place due to density difference, which is caused by temperature difference between solid plate and air. • Natural convection is the process of heat transfer which occurs due to movement of the fluid particles by density change associated with temperature differential in a fluid. • Some Example are given below: 1. The cooling of electrical transformers and rectifiers. 2. The heat transfer from hot pipes by cooled air .

Factor Affecting convective Heat Transfer Coefficient 1. Temperature Difference (T) T the greater the heat transfer rate. 2. Fluid flow rate Increasing flow rate increasing heat transfer rate. 3. Surface area the larger the surface area of conducting interfaces, the greater the heat transfer rate.Read More
