- Of the three modes of heat transfer, the convection mode has the most varied applications
- The molecular motion at the heat transfer interface is the result of conduction through the stagnant thermal boundary layer
- In convective heat transfer the engineer is faced with estimating the heat transfer coefficient, hc, for a surface. This coefficient comes from texts of empirical formulas, which are based on actual experiments and observations
- We cannot calculate the heat transfer coefficient exactly because we can analytically solve only the differential equations governing convection for the simplest flows and geometries
