So in a lumped parameter system, we use the ln(Θ)=exp(-hAt/ρVc), where Θ is non-dimensional temperature. This expression has 't' i.e. time in it. So does this mean it is used only for transient problems? Also, does the Biot number Bi tell us anything about whether a problem is in transient or steady state, or is that entirely determined by Fourier number Fo?
