Conductive heat transfer in granular systems may be described simply by conduction between the particles in contact and no continuous phase is required.
The sensor size eliminates any conductive heat transfer issues through the lead wire, which enhances measurement accuracy.
The generation of heat in the polymer itself depends on its thermal properties, viscosity, and the conductive heat transfer to or from the extruder.
The latter is calculated as the heat transfer load, that is, the thermal load due to convective, radiative, and conductive heat transfer mechanisms plus the infiltration load.
Steady-state conductive heat transfer in two dimensions is first simulated to evaluate the borehole thermal resistance for the different configurations.
Using fluids with higher conductive heat transfer coefficients, which are usually practiced to increase the heat transfer coefficient of microchannels, causes high pressure drops.
Duke's exclusive HEATSINK(TM) technology features three-sided, wraparound heating that provides gentle and conductive heat transfer.
it can be seen that the conductive heat transfer through knitted fabric takes place through unsupported yarns, interlaced region and air pores (only in case of non-convective mode) (Salopek & Skenderi, 2009 a).
