On completion of this chapter a student should be able to:
• Calculate radiation heat transfer between black body surfaces
• Calculate radiation heat transfer between from diffuse and grey surfaces
• Evaluate radiation view factors and use approximations given by Kirchoffs Law
1. Nature of radiant heat transfer. In the preceding sections of the book we have studied conduction and convection heat transfer. In conduction, heat is transferred from one part of a body to another, and the intervening material is heated. In convection, heat is transferred by the actual mixing ...
