### Heat transfer by thermal convection

0
With heat transfer by thermal convection, heat is transported with a flowing substance. Convection only occurs in fluids, i.e. gases and liquids. You will find more information in this...

### Heat equation (diffusion equation)

0
The heat equation describes the temporal and spatial behavior of temperature for heat transport by thermal conduction. Read more about it in this article.

### Heat and thermodynamic equilibrium

0
In thermodynamics, heat is the transport of energy due to a temperature difference. Heat in this respect is never "contained" in an object! Learn more about the thermodynamic concept...

### Heat transfer by thermal conduction

0
Heat transfer by thermal conduction means that heat is conducted through a material. Heat energy is transferred from molecule to molecule at the atomic level. More information on this...

### Rate of heat flow: Definition and direction

0
The rate of heat flow refers to the heat energy transferred per unit of time ("heat output"). The drive for the heat flow is a temperature difference. Learn more...

### Calculation of the Nusselt numbers for forced flows over plates and in pipes

0
In this article you will find formulas for calculating the local and average Nusselt numbers for forced flows over plates and in pipes with circular cross sections.

### Heat-Flow-Meter method for determining thermal conductivity (HFM)

0
With the Heat-Flow-Meter method (HFM) the thermal conductivity is determined by comparative measurement of the heat flow using a reference sample. Learn more about this absolute measurement method in...

### Laser-Flash method for determining thermal conductivity (LFA)

0
With the Laser-Flash method (Laser Flash Analyser, LFA), the thermal conductivity is determined by the temperature rise in a test sample that is heated by a short laser pulse...

### Thermal and concentration boundary layer

0
In addition to the hydrodynamic boundary layer, the thermal boundary layer and the concentration boundary layer also have a decisive influence on the entire heat and mass transport in...

### Heat transfer (heat transport)

0
Heat transfer is the transport of thermal energy from a warmer object to a cooler object. A distinction is made between thermal convection, thermal conduction and thermal radiation. You...
