## 5. General reviews

### 5.1. Constants

5.1.1. K: Thermal Conductivity: Increases with Temp for liquids but decreases with higher temp for gases

5.1.2. α:Thermal diffusivity:Heat conducted / Heat stored = K/eCp. Low α: insulating material low heat propagates through the medium

5.1.3. e=Emmisivity of the surface, resembles how perfect black body the surface is, the black body has an e=1

5.1.4. ℐ=pentratin depth = (tα)^1/2

### 5.2. Ideas

5.2.1. Feel cooler in the winter: body radiates 4 times for than in summer, hence more energy lost in winter due to the greater effect between the amb and body

5.2.2. Thermal contact resistance: Rc Temprature drop at interference of surfaces :

5.2.3. critical radius =: kmax/hmin, going up increases the r hence increases Q convection but we get to rc where Qconv<Qinsul. However, addiing resistance to a wall increases length which decreases Q

5.2.4. How to increase Q?

5.2.4.1. 1)forced convection: increase h by adding fans

5.2.4.2. 2)Increase surface area by adding fins made of Highly conductive materials

5.2.5. Effectivness for fin: e for find is < 1, fin acts as an insulator

5.2.5.1. How to increase effectiveness? increase k and L and lower h. Slim and tall and metallic

5.2.5.2. Best Fin length choose? @mL=1 and gives 76% of an infinity long fin heat at only 1/5 length of the super long fin

5.2.6. Lumped system: temperature with respect to time is uniform the system

5.2.7. Boundary Layer: Forms due to no slip condition and Friction

5.2.8. The thickness of the thermal boundary layer increases in the flow direction, since the effects of heat transfer are felt at greater distances from the surface further down stream.

5.2.9. As temp goes up: viscosity goes down for fluids but goes up for gases

5.2.10. Surface roughness, and the flow type and drag coeffiecnt: Surface roughness, in general, increases the drag coefficient in turbulent flow. This is especially the case for streamlined bodies. For blunt bodies such as a circular cylinder or sphere, however, an increase in the surface roughness may increase or decrease the drag coefficient depending on Reynolds number.

5.2.11. Air acts as an insulator for thermal resistance, removing air increases the thermal resistance

### 5.3. Numbers

5.3.1. Biot= resistance of (conduction/ convection), m=(hp/kAc)^1/2. Bi=hL/k = hV/kAs

5.3.2. Nu= hL/k. Dimensionless convection heat transfer coefficient. The Nusselt number represents the enhancement of heat transfer through a fluid layer as a result of convection relative to conduction across the same fluid layer. The larger the Nusselt number, the more effective the convection.

5.3.3. Pr: v/alpha: The relative thickness of the velocity and the thermal boundary layers is best described by the dimensionless parameter Prandtl number. The Prandtl numbers of gases are about 1, which indicates that both momentum and heat dissipate through the fluid at about the same rate. Heat diffuses very quickly in liquid metals (Pr << 1) and very slowly in oils (Pr >> 1) relative to momentum. Consequently the thermal boundary layer is much thicker for liquid metals and much thinner for oils relative to the velocity boundary layer.

5.3.4. Recritcal= 5*10^5, used to find Lc, critical length for flow over objects, when flow becomes turbulent

5.3.5. Lc: V/As characteristics length
