Transient conduction

  • J. R. Simonson


In any thermal system, transient heat transfer generally occurs before and after steady state operating conditions. The time duration of the transient condition can be of importance in design, and further, excessive thermal stress may arise. A simple approach is to assume the system is lumped, i.e. the temperature is uniform in space and is a function of time only. In a more detailed analysis, temperature will also be a function of position.
