Thermal Relationships

  1. Jul 6, 2006 #1
    Does thermal conductivity have any connection with heat transfer coefficient? If so what is one in terms of the other.

    (heat transfer coefficient) = (thermal conductivity) / (thickness of the material considered)

    (heat flux) = (heat transfer coefficient) * (temperature difference) * (surface exposed to temperature gradient)
