One-Dimensional Steady-State Conduction

Conduction heat transfer will take place if there is a temperature gradient in a solid body. Conduction heat transfer will continue till the temperature is identical at every location in the body. Conduction heat transfer is associated with lattice vibration and free electron transport. In this chapter, one-dimensional heat transfer analysis is carried out with the application of Fourier’s law.

2.1 FOURIER'S LAW

Fourier’s law states that the rate of heat transfer per unit surface area is proportional to the temperature gradient normal to the surface.
