UNIT I - CONDUCTION
INTRODUCTORY CONCEPTS AND BASIC LAWS OF HEAT TRANSFER
We recall from our knowledge of thermodynamics that heat is a form of energy transfer
that takes place from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature solely
due to the temperature difference between the two regions. With the knowledge of
thermodynamics we can determine the amount of heat transfer for any system undergoing any
process from one equilibrium state to another. Thus the thermodynamics knowledge will tell
us only how much heat must be transferred to achieve a specified change of state of the
system. But in practice we are more interested in knowing the rate of heat transfer (i.e. heat
transfer per unit time) rather than the amount. This knowledge of rate of heat transfer is
necessary for a design engineer to design all types of heat transfer equipments like boilers,
condensers, furnaces, cooling towers, dryers etc. The subject of heat transfer deals with the
determination of the rate of heat transfer to or from a heat exchange equipment and also the
temperature at any location in the device at any instant of time.
The basic requirement for heat transfer is the presence of a ―temperature difference‖. The
temperature difference is the driving force for heat transfer, j ust as the voltage difference for
electric current flow and pressure difference for fluid flow. One of the parameters , on which
the rate of heat transfer in a certain direction depends, is the magnitude of the temperature
gradient in that direction. The larger the gradient higher will be the rate of heat transfer.
Heat Transfer Mechanisms :There are three mechanisms by which heat transfer can take place. All the three modes require
the existence of temperature difference. The three mechanisms are: (i) conduction, (ii)
convection and (iii) radiation
Conduction:It is the energy transfer that takes place at molecular levels. Conduction is the transfer of energy
from the more energetic molecules of a substance to the adjacent less energetic molecules as a
result of interaction between the molecules. In the case of liquids and gases conduction is due to

collisions and diffusion of the molecules during their random motion. In solids, it is due to the
vibrations of the molecules in a lattice and motion of free electrons.
Fourier’s Law of Heat Conduction:The empirical law of conduction based on experimental results is named after the French
Physicist Joseph Fourier. The law states that the rate of heat flow by conduction in any medium
in any direction is proportional to the area normal to the direction of heat flow and also
proportional to the temperature gradient in that direction. For example the rate of heat transfer in
x-direction can be written according to Fourier‘s law as
Qx α − A (dT / dx)
…………………….(1.1)
Or
Qx = − k A (dT / dx) W………………….. ..(1.2)
In equation (1.2), Qx is the rate of heat transfer in positive x-direction through area A of the
medium normal to x-direction, (dT/dx) is the temperature gradient and k is the constant of
proportionality and is a material property called ―thermal conductivity‖. Since heat transfer has
to take place in the direction of decreasing temperature, (dT/dx) has to be negative in the
direction of heat transfer. Therefore negative sign has to be introduced in equation (1.2) to make
Qx positive in the direction of decreasing temperature, thereby satisfying the second law of
thermodynamics. If equation (1.2) is divided throughout by A we have
qx is called the heat flux.
qx = (Qx / A) = − k (dT / dx) W/m2 ………..(1.3)
In the case of solids heat conduction is due to two effects: the vibration of lattice induced by the
vibration of molecules positioned at relatively fixed positions, and energy transported due to the
motion of free electrons. The relatively high thermal conductivities of pure metals are primarily
due to the electronic component. The lattice component of thermal conductivity strongly depends
on the way the molecules are arranged. For example, diamond, which is highly ordered
crystalline solid, has the highest thermal conductivity at room temperature.

Unlike metals, which are good electrical and heat conductors, crystalline solids such as diamond
and semiconductors such as silicon are good heat conductors but poor electrical conductors.
Hence such materials find widespread use in electronic industry. Despite their high price,
diamond heat sinks are used in the cooling of sensitive electronic components because of their
excellent thermal conductivity. Silicon oils and gaskets are commonly used in the packaging of
electronic components because they provide both good thermal contact and good electrical
insulation.
One would expect that metal alloys will have high thermal conductivities, because pure metals
have high thermal conductivities. For example one would expect that the value of the thermal
conductivity k of a metal alloy made of two metals with thermal conductivities k1 and k2 would
lie between k1 and k2.But this is not the case. In fact k of a metal alloy will be less than that of
either metal.
